Yes, Lagers can be a craft brew! Finally, American craft brewers are waking up to the fact that there is a market for quality Lagers in the United States. The large breweries in the U.S. gave Lager a bad name; but craft brewers have discovered that the beer drinking public is starved for quality Lagers as an alternative to Ales – in particular the proliferation of IPA’s. Jim Vorel of PASTE Magazine gives us a great interview with Arches Brewing of Hapeville, GA’s co-founder Ryan Fogelgren and brewmaster Jamey Adams on the recent growth of craft brew Lagers and why they decided to focus their efforts in this segment of the market. This as an interview from back in April of this year; but still worth a read. A link to the entire interview is below:
