Our Family of Beers

We like to joke that we brew the beer that we want to drink, not confined by sticking to a certain style family or limited our imaginations on what’s possible with our craft beer.  As we’ve updated our presence online, we’re actively working to not only provide details on each of beers but where possible – help inspire your own creativity with tips for homebrewers and beer fans including pairings, recipes, and other ideas to enjoy beers from Lower Forge.

Here are our family of beers, starting with some of the latest additions – powered by our partnership with Untappd.

Squeeze the Day (Shandy / Radler)

The Radler has a rich tradition near Munich after, as legend goes, a tavern owner mixed Sparkling Grapefruit Juice and a Pilsner as a refreshing treat after a bicycle race in 1926. Traditionally a 60/40 or higher beer-to-fruit ratio compared to American Shandies, our Radler is a homage to the legend and the style that is still wildly popular in the warmer German summer months.
