Section 11 Lager

Section 11 is our first attempt at a lager. The style is based on pre-prohibition American lagers brewed by Austrian and German immigrants who missed the beers of their homeland. It contains a mix of German and American malt and hops for a truly classic taste.

The name Section 11 refers to the logo of the Ferdinand Heim Brewery which produced some of the most popular beers brewed in Kansas City before Prohibition.
