We produce approachable and balanced beers in the heart of Asheville NC, the little circus town we call home. Find our lagers and ales in grocery stores, restaurants, and bottle shops across NC, SC, TN, OH, KY, GA, AL, IN, & VA. Visit our six locations: the 27,000 square foot Big Top Production Facility & Taproom located half a mile from the Biltmore Estate, the South Slope Specialty Brewery & Taproom located in the South Slope region of downtown specializing in sour and wild ales, our Golden Belt Taproom in Durham, NC, our Taproom in South Knoxville, our spot in Wilmington, NC, or our newest taproom in Louisville, KY.
This true American lager is as approachable as it is delicious, a perfect balance of light Pilsen malt and German hops. Extensively lagered until the beer reaches peak maturity, this lager is your handcrafted option when only a refreshing, light beer will do.
Available year-round in 6-packs of 16oz cans.
IMPORTANT FEATURE: This beer is lagered for 7 weeks to ensure proper flavor and cleanness, much longer than typical craft lagers.
HOPS: German Tradition, German Tettnang | COLOR: Clear Gold | YEAST: Lager
