Norfolk, Virginia based O’Connor Brewing Company has released a new year-round beer into their 8 year old lineup – Proper Lager. A lighter beer that’s needed an IPA and adjunct heavy industry.
For the better part of 2018, O’Connor Brewing was perfecting the recipe, brewing process and launch of this new year-rounder. A lager is a beer you have to get right. There aren’t dark malts, barrel aging or pounds of vanilla beans or fruit to cover up any missteps in the brewing process.
Proper Lager is a helles-style lager, brewed properly according to O’Connor. Helles-style lagers are German pale lager beers (with pilsners, and Dortmund Export styles). Helles in German translates to bright, or light. Incidentally, that description is perfect for this new lager. It’s every bit a bright, crisp and clean beer, that’s impossible to put down.
Without digging deep into the thesaurus, Proper Lager is simply fantastic.
O’Connor Proper Lager is one of seven flagship beers available year-round, in Virginia, Washington D.C., and parts of North Carolina. Available in 12-ounce cans and draft.
Style: Helles Lager
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
