If you’re looking for a crisp, refreshing lager, forget the mass produced megabrands (or should that be megablands?) and choose a Premium Lager with an impressive pedigree. The Fürstenberg brewery in the heart of the Black Forest can trace its roots back to 1283. And although they’ve grown considerably in that time, exporting quality German beers to countries worldwide, they still source their raw materials as locally as possible. This, their Premium Lager, weighs in at 5.3% alcohol, so it’s designed to have a little more flavour and character than your average lager. It’s slightly darker too, thanks to the addition of a little more malt. A favourite during Oktoberfest, this is a great choice with pretzels, curry, wurst and lively company.
