In this blog, we are going to get into the second beer, which is Lucky Bucket Pre-Prohibition Lager Style, from my Beer of the Month. I did a blog post yeasterday on their Heartland Wheat Ale and I wrote a little history on the brewery. Let us get into their Flagship beer.
Lucky Bucket Pre – Prohibition Lager is one of their everyday beers. When poured in the glass, it has a nice clear and amber color with no head on the beer. It has a s’more like smell, which I mean it has a malty smell to the beer. The beer has a malty dry and crisp aftertaste to it. This beer style shows us beer drinkers what an American Lager should be than the water down beer that is being shoved down our throats. Also, what beers were like way back in the day.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:
A lot of things go into making a great beer. This Pre-Prohibition style lager, for example, combines 100% malted bareley with just the right amount of hops, making it smoother and more flavorful than today’s typical lagers. But the most important ingredient isn’t on the label; it’s our passion for quality that goes into every Lucky Bucket Brew. So take another drink and savor what real beer is all about.
Here is a description from their website (www.luckybucketbrewing.com):
Everyone loves a great drinking beer; a brew you can drink again and again and enjoy every sip every time. Lucky Bucket Pre-Prohibition style Lager is exactly what the palate craves.
Pre-Prohibition style salutes a time when lagers had greater character and more distinct flavor, when beer wasn’t full of the additives found in many of today’s mainstream lagers. Lucky Bucket’s version has a light, malty flavor that’s easy on the palate. Filtered twice, the subtle maltiness nicely balances a floral hop. Dry-hopped with a fresh blend of aromatic West Coast hops, Lucky Bucket Lager is a great session beer with an ABV of 4.5% and 20 IBU’s.

In closing, Lucky Bucket Brewery has done a really great job on this lager. I do not understand why we have the normal American Lager that we have today. It is sad when you hear lager; I bet you think of the the mass produced American Lager. There is nothing wrong with those beers. The problem I have is Prohibition put several breweries that brew this great style of beer out of business. Since the Craft Beer movement, they have been dead or loss. It is nice to see this Lager Beer Style coming back to life. Now the mass produced beer companies are starting to see this movement and now they are bring their recipes back to life. One is from Coors with their Batch #19 that is only available in draught only. Lucky Bucket Brewery for being a young brewery has a bright future and their Pre-Prohibition Style Lager is going to push them into the light of craft beer drinkers around the country. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
