While there has been no official announcement from the brewery, it appears that Niagara’s Best Beer in St. Catherine’s is now brewing a Lager to compliment their Blonde Ale. The Beer Store lists it as being available at 18 locations in the Niagara region, and provides the following commercial description:
Niagara’s Best Lager is a Canadian style lager with a sweet malt character and a smooth clean finish. This product contains 5.5% alcohol by volume and is lightly hopped to appeal to the tastes of the mainstream beer drinker.
This beer seems to represent an attempt by Niagara’s Best to grab a slice of the lucrative but increasingly crowded buck-a-beer market, as it’s currently available only in cases of 24 bottles priced at $26.40 including deposit.
