TODAY IS LAGER DAY
There’s nothing that puts a wonderful cap on the day like an ice cold beer, and there are those that would argue that the only thing better is a beer that found its start in the cold.
How to celebrate Lager Day
Celebrate the day by drinking a lager and Lager Day is your opportunity to broaden your palette and enjoy the history of one of the world’s favorite beverages.
