Unlike lighter lagers, whose focus is entirely mass production instead of flavor, the Premium Lager is brewed without cereal grains like rice and corn. Its color ranges from golden to bronze and should have great clarity. Its alcohol strength straddles sessionable and moderate. Its palate is relatively neutral but its mild bitterness is a bit stronger than the adjunct lagers. Often crisp and dry with a medium-light body. Comparatively, the Premium Lager is darker than a Pale Lager and a European Pilsener but has less carbonation. It’s also less bitter than a Pils.

Proud to Support Independent Craft Brewers
For years, small and independent U.S. craft breweries have been turning the beer world upside down. Their ability to take risks, innovate flavors and build better communities has made the U.S. the craft beer capital of the world.
To proudly display that independent spirit, the Brewers Association created a symbol to unify U.S. craft breweries and those who want to support them. This certified mark gives beer lovers an easy way to identify independent craft beer.
