Well, Bob and I decided to give pale lagers another go. We have come to the conclusion that we have way too many beers to work though and for full disclosure notice, we did this tasting after a round of double IPA’s. So, if you think our soon be trademark style is a little off, it’s because we had a wee bit too much to drink that day.

In this session we have a lot of St. Louis connections. We tried an AB-In Bev lager that they don’t see fit to let us drink, a beer who’s recipe is from pre-prohibition St. Louis, a new St. Louis Brewery, and the go to import beer. Bob and I aren’t really too big on lagers anymore, but they definitely have their time and place. There’s nothing like a great light lager to add to my bbq sauce or to drink while I’m grilling outside in August, but drinking these in the dead of winter clearly were not any of those times.

As a family, we went downtown and watched the St. Louis Cardinals victory parade down Market Street. Afterwards we went home and as our wives went shopping, we started drinking.

I’m going to stop saying that we have any kind of set number for how many beers we do in a sitting, because it never seems to stick. I do believe, however, that we have eclipsed the number that any sane person should do in a single sitting, but this is what happens when we are left to our own devices. We thought of the beer in terms of time and not beers.

In this round, we have seven different pale lagers from literally all over the world. We went with some macro lagers, imports, craft, etc. I think we have a very good mix of them. Because we’ve chosen beers from all over the world, we’re just going to call these pale lagers instead of Pale American Lagers, but it’s close enough for government work.
