Kviek Lager made with Red Shed

Kviek Lager made with Red Shed

The weather is turning nice, which means beer is going to be flying off shelves and out of the taproom. When you turn over the tanks quick and replenish the inventory levels we got your beer: the Kveik Lager.

Feel free to tweak this recipe to make it your own. Want it a bit bigger? Add a dry hop, swap the Rocky for Kananaskis, and add a few more kgs of Penhold Pilsner. Want to lean into the fruit flavours try using some HBC-1019 hops. More west coast - go with some cascade. Either way, you’ll end up with a beer that is perfect for those hot summer days.
