Some call it stubbornness, we call it Defiance; the name of our latest lager. This German-style lager is a relatively rare sight stateside but has a history dating back to the Middle Ages in Bavaria. Brewers would lager their beers in caves where the temperatures were consistently cool; ideal for their slower fermentation. Kellerbier actually translates to “cellar beer” and while we didn’t chisel out our own lagering caves in Croydon, we did the best we could to stick to tradition. The result is a gently hopped golden brew with the aroma of freshly baked bread and notes of honey and toasted nuts. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, Defiance exemplifies patience, persistence, and pride.
