Even Less Hype
“Even Less Hype” is the Oak Foeder-lagered Czech-style dark lager follow-up to our massively popular German-style black lager “Who Broke the Hype Machine?” This time, though, we’ve dialed the ABV down even further, y’all, and spent a lot of time doing silly anachronistic stuff like sourcing malt from the Czech Republic, and doing decoction mashes. We also lagered it cold in our brand new white oak foeder. You know, real hype stuff.
Really, though, this beer is a loving homage to the dark and still sessionable lagers of Bohemia. Cold-fermented and lagered for an extended period, Even Less Hype is remarkably smooth and nuanced, with beguiling toasted marshmallow/light vanilla flavors and light tannin from the aging period in the oak foeder.
All crowlers and bottles are 750 mL.
