The Cream Ale is an ale brewers answer to a light lager. Some time after the American Revolution, German immigrants settled and began brewing lagers that were light, clear, and effervescent. They began taking market share from the Yankee brewers, so they came up with a top-fermented beer that mimicked the light lager but was done faster using ale yeast. This great American lawn mower beer is clean, crisp, and light with a hint of corn sweetness and spiciness from the Saaz hops. We brewed Cream of the Crop as a mild option for people just testing the waters of craft beer and also as a tribute to the history of this great industry.
