Lost lager – Best Value Craft Lager?

Apr 21, 2020 | Beer Reviews

There are many superb lagers now made by craft brewers, but it can still be hard to find them available in larger quantities at a competitive price.

Lager is a drinkable beer, and as it dominates the globe, is the style most people are familiar with when they think of beer. It’s usually useful to have in for guests – even though at the moment it’s unlikely many of us have any visitors!

Still, the sun is starting to shine, and lagers are refreshing, with the crisp finish leaving you wanting another. I don’t think this is really sustainable if you are spending 3 or even 4 quid a can to drink.

The best price I found for respected lagers such as Keller Pills is £2.50 a bottle, which is not bad. But even this cannot compete with Brewdog’s Lost Lager, currently being sold for just £1 a can, which represents great value.

Brewdog have previously brewed lagers like This. Is. Lager and Kingpin, but I feel Lost Lager is their best to date.

Lost Lager by Brewdog

The house yeast strain from Germany’s Weihenstephan brewery provides the clean, crisp taste Bavarian pilsners are known for. Pouring clear with light carbonation, here’s a biscuity pilsner malt base twinned with a pleasing lime-tinged finish. Saphir, a new German hop variety gives subtle stone fruit aromas and a zesty citrus characteristic.

Brewdog Co-Founder James Watt has been giving an interesting peak behind the scenes at Brewdog this week, starting with some videos of the impressive canning line and cool packaging robots doing their work. Check out the video below to see Lost Lager getting canned and packed.

At the time of writing, Lost lager is still available on Brewdog’s shop for £1 a can.

Thornbridge started their Beer Club in Q4 2020, but the announcement that the March 2021 case would contain bottles of Bracia tempted me to join up.

Here’s a few recommendations for beers for Easter. Some are a good match for chocolate, others have a strong Easter theme and some are made for this time of year.
