I haven’t had much from Fort Collins, perhaps due to their complete lack of proximity to New England (they’re in Colorado) but I was lucky to see this at Oliver’s in Albany. Though it is named a ‘Lager’ it is far more than a simple lager. The label features a ‘z’ burned into a piece of wood, surrounded by flames. Though I thought this was cool, I didn’t realize its significance until I read further. This, was a Rauchbier, which features malts which are roasted prior to brewing (historically over actual fire). So, because I liked the Rogue Smoke Ale (also a Rauchbier) I was excited to try this.
