Milwaukee’s Lakefront Brewery has been a staple of Wisconsin craft beer for over three decades. With that kind of longevity, you have to a.) have a good product that people want, and b.) be adaptable. Today’s Thirsty Thursday special incorporates both of those things, as we offer two of their longest-running beers in their brand new packaging!
Riverwest Stein is Lakefront’s flagship beer, an Amber Lager meant to please a crowd without sacrificing flavor. It pours an amber color (duh) with an off-white head. Caramel and bready notes are balanced by slight hop bite and a clean finish.
In true Lakefront fashion, IPA is perfectly balanced. Cascade, Chinook, and Citra hops combine for floral and citrus notes, while a malty backbone swoops in to keep everything in proper proportion.
