Let’s face it, the simple yellow fizzy lager still dominates almost every country’s brewery production. Because of that, the early craft brewers avoided making them.  However, as the market has matured, you’ll now find an amazing variety of craft lagers. The difference between them and their big brewery cousins is the absence of rice and corn adjuncts, and a more prominent use of hops and different malts. Our top choice is Calgary’s Carvel Brewery, whose Cold Brew Coffee Light Lager is exactly what you think it is; light and crisp with added dark roast coffee which becomes obvious in the aroma and flavour.
