In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Petoskey Brewing. It is their Sparkle Lager. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery. Let us get into this lager.
It has a clear golden color without a head. There is not any aroma notes. The taste has a sweet corn notes with a crisp dry aftertaste. It is a extremely drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.petoskeybrewing.com):
Sparkle American Lager
Our homage to the original “Petoskey Sparkle” brewed by Petoskey Brewing from 1898 until 1915. Wheat and four special malts combine with three different types of hops to create a super clean, easy drinking lager.
4.1% ABV, 12 IBU

Closing, this beer was brewed under the original Petoskey Brewery. The fun fact is they are in the same building as original Petoskey Brewery. They took the original recipe and brought it up to the modern time. This beer taste and smells like it did back in the day. This is what I was told by the brewery. They did a great job honoring this beer. It is just like any North American Adjunct Lager. It is lighter than Bud Light and other light beers. It is not a light beer to them. This is perfect summer beer. I just wished it was in a 12oz cans. I like it. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
