Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. "Danish Red" Amber Lager, California (22oz)

SKU #1159314

From the LA Times: "Inspired by the malty lagers of Denmark, this multiple-award-winning brew from Buellton's Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. features the kind of complex malt flavors that perfectly complement autumn, but Danish Red Lager remains crisp and drinkable enough for even Southern California's balmy version of the season. The beer pours a hazy copper with a creamy head. It has aromas of caramel apples and toasted bread. Seven different malts are used to brew the sweet-yet-not-cloying Vienna-style lager and provide layer after layer of malty flavors. This richness is offset by just enough hop character to provide balance. The brew's clean finish accentuates a delicate bitterness that doesn't linger on the palate. The Vienna lager is a style largely ignored by craft brewers, and Figueroa Mountain's interpretation demonstrates just how satisfying the crisp, malty beers can be, especially when served with food. Equally at home alongside the sweet or savory, Danish Red Lager has enough body to stand up to flavorful dishes and enough carbonation and bitterness to help refresh the palate after rich foods."

Additional Information:


United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Santa Maria/Santa Barbara

- Santa Maria and Santa Ynez make up the two AVAs of Santa Barbara County, an area known for its natural beauty and temperate climate. The best grape-growing areas, however, are located on the very coastal reaches of these two appellations, and are cooled by ever-present fog and ocean breezes (it is even cooler and foggier here than Carneros!). As expected, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir thrive while the more inland zones lay claim to Bordeaux varietals and some Rhône blends.
