Point Special Wine Details

Description: Skillfully brewed since 1857, Point Special Lager is a well-balanced, full-bodied premium beer. Highly praised for its pleasant hop aroma and smooth, hearty flavor, Point Special is made from nature's finest ingredients, including the highest grade barley, hops and pure Wisconsin water.

Varietal Definition
Pale lagers are the most commonly consumed type of beer in the world. Lagers are of Central European origin, taking their name from the German lagern ("to store"). Lager yeast is a bottom-fermenting yeast, and typically begins fermentation at 7-12°C (45-55°F) (the "fermentation phase"), and then stored at 0-4°C (30-40°F) (the "lagering phase"). During the secondary stage, the lager clears and mellows. The cooler conditions also inhibit the natural production of esters and other byproducts, resulting in a "crisper" tasting beer.
