Abandon Ship Smoked Lager

Abandon Ship

Smoked Lager

Inspired by the Rauch Bier’s of Bamberg, Germany, Abandon Ship Smoked Lager contains German Malted Barley smoked over Beechwood and fermented cold with lager yeast. Imagine a Märzen/Oktoberfest-style base beer with a sweet, smoky aroma and flavor. Deep amber hues and low bitterness help the non-smoked crystal malts compliment, not contrast, the smoky/savory taste of this beer.

Much of the Ballast Point theme revolves around ships. When ships were made with wood a fire was life-threatening, every time. Some fires lead to the dreaded call of “abandon ship” to get off the boat immediately. Drinking Abandon Ship lager is a much more relaxing way to enjoy the smoky aroma and taste of aromatic, slow-burning wood.
