The Best: Lagers
At last, the IPA Dominance has been toppled! The Bitterness Battles that raged for so many years, with competing breweries coming up with new ways to shove IBUs into a glass until they were past the point of human perception, have ended. Behold, the lager! No mere acerbic beer made with rice or corn, but a truly delicious, complicated, and lovingly crafted product. Portland, which so long suffered under the yoke of ales, is free, finally, to try beers made with bottom-fermenting yeast. Pilsner and helles, dunkel and bock, lead us into our crisp, golden future.
