y, lager is misunderstood.

Lager is actually a collective name for many bottom-fermenting beer styles, where the colour varies from dark brown to light blonde and the alcohol percentage ranges from alcohol-free to over 10%.

We are going to dive into some of the most common questions about lager, but at the end of this article, you'll be a lager expert!

What is the difference between lager and beer?

Sounds simple, but we get asked this one a lot.

In short, all lager is beer, but not all beer is a lager.

Both are a collective name for bottom-fermenting beer types.

Pilsner, helles lager, Dortmunder, bock and Märzen are examples of beers that are part of the lager family.

What is the difference between lager and pilsner?

Pilsner is actually a type of lager, named after the Czech city Plzen.

The most notable difference between them is that pilsners tend to have more hop-forward flavours and they use different yeast.

Ultimately, pilsners are just spicier, more hoppy lagers.

Pilsner was first brewed in 1842 by the Bavarian brewer Josef Groll.

Groll set about trying to produce a good quality lager as the quality of Czech lager at the time was disappointing.

From Bavaria, Groll brought a special yeast, which mixed with the soft water of Plzen produced a clear beer, golden in colour and crisp in character.

The beer was loved so much that it still exists today: Pilsener Urquell.

A must-try and a good place to start if you want to explore Pilsner!

If you're interested in pilsner, read Czech beer for a more detailed description.

So what actually is a pilsner?

A good pilsner a is fairly dry, spicy and hoppy lager.

Craft Lager by Canadian brewers Steamworks is a good example of this. A true pilsner-style lager is, nicely described as "a harmonic link between the old and the new world".
