Today’s Year of Beer painting is of Karbach Brewing Co’s Mother-in-Lager, which is a Munich Dunkel lager! To me it tasted like a Bock, not too hoppy. Actually, my mother-in-law would love this brew! She is always after a sweeter, maltier option! So the story goes that this brew was invented to provide the patience required to deal with a visit from your mother-in-law. Its dark color is perfect for stealth drinking, coffee cups anybody? I received this can in the mail from Karbach Brewing directly from Houston, Texas! I was really excited to see a lager in the batch, but I was surprised when I poured a mahogany dark liquid from the can. Then my second impression was, duh, just because it is lagered doesn’t mean it has to be yellow and fizzy! I was also stoked on the name. Great marketing Karbach! Who wouldn’t have this around just to tell friends, uh oh, I got a case of the Mother-in-Lager, she’s on her way! Basically, this beer rocks. What else can grease the ease of impending judgement than a fresh dark lager? To Houston’s beer scene! I wish distribution to Alaska was possible, because I would keep a case of the Mother-in-Lager on hand! It’s a seasonal, so stock up now!
