Okay, get ready for some serious old world beer flavor with Rauchbier! This distinctive German beer style literally translates to “smoke beer” – and you can taste why.

It can seem a little unusual at first, but it’s absolutely addictive once you acquire the taste. Smoked Ham, German Beer, Old World, Bacon, Amber, Beer

Hey there beer friend! Today let’s unearth the historical German style Lichtenhainer.  These smoked wheat ales originate from medieval Germany. Alongside smoky flavors, Lichtenhainers feature sour, bready notes from Lactobacillus bacteria. An unusual combination!  Expect aromas of smoked ham along with tart lemon and hay. The flavor balances smokiness with a bracing sourness, backed by earthy, herbal hops. ABV is low, around 3-5%.
