Special Dark Lager
A Note on This Beer
Washington beer nerds know their craft. Thrillist ranked WA the #7 Beer State In The Country. So when Matchless rocketed into the scene winning five medals at the Washington Beer Awards before they even celebrated their grand opening — the nerds took notice.
That was less than 2 years ago and they’ve since gone on to collect an arsenal of medals, including one at the 2018 Craft Brewers Conference. With its refreshing take on Lager innovation, today's Special Dark Lager is a prime example of what makes Matchless so exceptional.
Let’s be honest, Lagers aren’t flashy and because of this they often get overlooked. The brewery puts the Lager back in the spotlight with this revitalizing hybrid. It tastes like a Schwarzbier/Baltic Porter mash-up: a crisp body meets rich, bittersweet chocolate spread over toast, with hints of smoked oak and a dry finish.
With bold flavored refreshment like this, beer nerds can session through several cans of Special Dark Lager while chillin’ on the couch watching football. And it makes for a clutch thirst-quencher on a forest hike.
Special Dark helps us remember all of the reasons why we love Lagers, and why the Washington Beer nerds all sweat Matchless so hard.
*Don’t pour this into a frosted mug, your friends will laugh at you. Dark Lagers are best served between 40-45 degrees.
