New addition to our Czech Lagers family.
Silný Ležák 17º (Czech Premium Strong Pale Lager, 7.4% abv) is a continuation of our ongoing efforts to brew beers in the Czech tradition. This particular lager was inspired by our brewmaster's visit to Budvar Brewery in the Czech city of České Budějovice. Within its maze of lagering vessels, he tried a bolder and maltier version of the pale lagers he'd grown accustomed to and decided to craft one of his own for proper winter drinking. In accordance with Czech brewing philosophy, Godspeed's version was decocted and cold conditioned for 8 weeks. Czech floor malted pils and Saaz hops form an array of rich caramelized, bready malt notes and herbal, spice hop character. We hope it inspires you the way the style's progenitor inspired us.
Also, our Tmavý Ležák 12° (Czech Premium Dark Lager, 4.7% abv) is back at the retail store.
Cheers & Happy holidays!

I think so, this ain’t a cheater beer loaded with coffee. However it is delicious, quite smokey and complex with oak, vanilla, cola, fruity flavours all over.
Godspeed made a lager version of Peche last year which was every bit as good as the original, if not better.
