Vienna

Tumbler® Coffee Stout

Vienna

The quintessential amber lager revisited.

Vienna-style beers are among the world’s first light-colored lagers and were on the brink of extinction until American craft brewers helped revive the style; it’s a good thing they did. These delicate and extremely balanced amber beers rely on semi-sweet and bready malt flavors but walk a fine line with both malt and hop character shouldering equal weight. Our take on the style features whole-cone European hops, which add to the dry finish.

  • The Craft Beer Revolution

    To those who would not go quietly…the dreamers, the builders, the iconoclasts. Before prohibition, America had more than 1,750 working breweries. By 1980, there were fewer than 100. The beer itself became boring, bland, and banal—eager to offend less, rather than to please more. In the west, there was a revolution afoot, a few solitary restless rebels working for a change. They knew there was more to beer than what they were given and they went their own way. They focused on flavor, character, style, and craft. With names like Maytag, McAuliffe, Grant, Grossman and DeBakker, they built tiny breweries and collectively changed the tastes of millions. They were pioneers, innovators, firebrands, but most of all they were inspirations. Today, there are more than 2,000 breweries in the US with more opening every day. America now makes the greatest number of beers in the most styles anywhere in the world.

  • Yeast

    Brewer’s yeast are unicellular fungi of the Saccharomyces family. Saccharomyces consume sugars during the process of fermentation and produce ethanol and carbon dioxide as byproducts. In addition to the business of fermentation, yeast can also provide a wide range of flavor and character in a beer. Some more neutral “American-style” yeast strains are noted for clean aromas with mild fruity character. Some yeast used for traditional German Hefeweizen are noted for intense flavors of banana and clove.

Brewing is as much art as science, and all beer specifications and raw materials are subject to change
at our brewers' creative discretion.
