Dortmunder makes its debut at the Tap Room!
Dortmunder is a German pale lager from the Dortmunder region. Hard water (high mineral content) and modest hopping rates allows the barley malt to shine, yet the finish has a snappy, dry minerality. Brewed with single decoction and an extended lagering time.
Dortmunder was first brewed by German brewers as a response to the new Czech Pilsners. However, the hard water yielded a much different result than the beers brewed with soft water in the Czech Republic.
