A pair of pilsner pretenders…


Ok, ok, I have an unhealthy alliteration addiction. Sue me! This duo are both from Scottish rebels Brew Dog. The Fake Lager is a traditional style bohemian pilsner. It has more maltiness than I’ve come to expect from Brew Dog. It’s still a hell of a lot more interesting than your average pilsner. Dog Wired is made in collaboration with New Zealand’s 8-Wired Brewery. It’s an imperial pilsner and not surprisingly it’s a good bit stronger at 6.8% to Fake Lager’s 4.7%. It’s also way hoppier with Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops in the mix. There is some citrus fruitiness as well.There has been a lot of rhetoric written already about Brew Dog’s beers, not least on their labels, but if they keep making beer this good I think they should be let away with it! The Dog Wired is the better of the two for my money…
