Big Reg Lager
Vienna / Marzen-Style Red Lager
Who is Beg Reg? A mystery man at the Holgate Hotel, he is rumoured to be a smooth-talking Bavarian with a fondness for Oktoberfest. Just like this beer, his form at celebrations is legendary.
Traditionally brewed in the northern hemisphere spring (Marzen meaning March), this style of lager is associated with German Autumn festivals after being cellared in cold caves over the summer. We don't have any caves handy, but still find it a great way to pass an autumn afternoon. Reg combines an abundance of Vienna and Munich malts to create a burnished, deep copper colour, and reveals biscuity lightly toasted malt flavours.
