18 – Steam Beer/California Common

Cal loves a lager, but sometimes the wait for that perfectly clean crispy beverage is just too long. One option? Brew a Steam Beer (AKA a California Common), a rough and ready lager yeast beer fermented high and rushed into your glass. 

 

We did find one example of the style, but had a bit of trouble getting the archetypal Anchor Steam Beer. So, instead, we tried these delicious alternatives:
