East Rock Lite Bier
August 20 @ 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us Saturday, August 20th, for our East Rock Lite Bier Release!
East Rock Lite Bier is our take on a German-style Leichtbier, or light beer. This remarkably pale and crisp golden lager is brewed with a blend of imported Pilsner and spitz malt and cold-hopped during fermentation with Saphir hops. Gown by Seitz Farm in the Hallertau region of Germany, the Saphir hops used in this recipe impart a spicy, herbal nuance and subtle hint of tangerine and lemon peel. At 4.2% ABV and 120 calories per 12 oz. serving, Lite Bier is our lightest and lowest calorie beer to date. 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and draft will be available at our beer hall and at select accounts in Connecticut for a limited time. Also, 2% of sales from this batch of Lite Bier will be donated to the Connecticut Forest & Park Association and an East Rock sponsored hike and clean-up around lake Wintergreen at West Rock Ridge State Park in New Haven will be announced in the coming days.
East Rock Lite Bier will be available in 16 oz. 4-packs, draft, and growlers!
