DESCRIPTION

hero_el_tecnico-393x1024Grandpa Tractor® is Barley Forge's Dortmunder Export, an almost forgotten style. This full-bodied, moderately hopped German lager was the favorite drink of coal miners and heavy industry workers of the first half of the 20th Century in Germany. Hoppier than a Helles and less hoppy than a Pils, our Dortmunder strikes a balance between the two with a hefty mouthfeel derived from Pilsen malt and higher alcohol content (around 5.0% abv). This refreshing beer goes well with the end of a hard day at work and pairs nicely with grilled steak, any type of pork dish, and any sort of Asian or Hispanic cuisine.

Serve in a tapered beer glassServe cold, 39 to 45 degrees fahrenheit, 4 to 7 degrees celsius
