Myth of Permanence 010: Dortmunder

Dortmunder 5.2%
 

The tenth in a monthly series of limited-releases showcasing various lager styles and, of course, meditating on the transience of all things.

Originally brewed in Dortmund, Germany in the 1870s, this beer style is often considered a middle ground between a Helles and a Pilsner. While Helles tends to be more malt-forward, and Pilsner more hop-forward, the Dortmunder is a tasty balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness.

Our collaboration with Old Town Bodega is a brilliantly golden Dortmunder with notes of doughy malt, spicy and floral hops and just a touch of citrus; a clean, crisp lager that’s just what we need for summer.
