Brewyard Beer Co. is a micro-brewery in Glendale, California specializing in a “California” Lagers. The only officially recognized beer of this hybrid style is the California Common (A.K.A Steam Beer).
What is a “California” or “Common” Lager?: It’s a beer that is fermented with lager yeast at higher ale-like temperatures for shorter periods of time and completely skips the lagering process. This brewing technique allows for a flavor profile similar to an ale but still retains a lighter finish of a traditional Lager. They can be both cloudy or clear in appearance. We like to call them “California Lagers” for short .
