Top 10 Lager Beer Brands and Best Lager
Lager is considered the most popular type of beer in the world.
Lager beer is one of two major types of beer. The other major type of beer is Ale. There are several different types of lager all around the world. Lager is generally golden-brown in color, but also comes in darker color as well (pale lager & dark lager). Lager is bottom fermented where the yeast settles at the bottom during fermentation. The fermentation process is done at a cold temperature. After fermentation, lager is stored for weeks to months before it’s ready for consumption.

Top 10 Lager Beers
1. Samuel Adam Double Bock
We’ll admit, we’re a little bias. We love Sam Adams, and it’s an American brand. Their seasonal brews are amazing, and conjure up instant nostalgia. In our opinion Double Bock is hands down the best lager in the world. Double Bock is thick, ruby red, and silky smooth with hints of chocolate, caramel, raisin, and sweet toffee. We we’re tempted to give the top 3 spots to Double Bock. It’s that good.
2. Knappstein Reserve Lager
Produced in South Austraila with Sauvin hops. This lager is distinctly fruity and floral. An excellent choice of lager and well deserving of the number two spot in this list.
3. San Miguel 1516
Produced in Spain. This lager is light gold, with hints of lemon, spice, tobacco. This lager tastes unique.
4. Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock
Glissade has a rich golden color and subtle malt flavor, that’s balanced with various spicy and floral aromas of European hops. We’re big fans.
