Portland-based Occidental Brewing is beginning to stray from producing only German-style beers with their new Cerveza Clara, Mexican-style Lager. Cerveza Clara is Occidental’s new specialty summer release, brewed for those 90-degree days.
Occidental says about this beer: Our take on this south-of-the-border beer style uses German Pilsner Malt with 6-row and flaked maize to provide an incredibly light body backed up by plenty of malt character. Brewed with a clean, crisp German lager yeast and finished gently with noble German hops it clocks in at 4.6% ABV, and 18 IBU.
Suggested pairings: Shrimp tacos, inflatable pools, summer vacation, a wedge of lime and salted rim.
