Dating back to at least 800BC, Schwarzbier (otherwise known as Black Lager) is the oldest known style of European beer. Black in colour, but with the crisp refreshing body of a lager, this beer gets its popularity from its intricate balance mixed with delicious drinkability! As usual, we brew one ourselves and talk about it, then try these commercial examples:
