The History of Zatec Bright Lager
The brewery flagship - a classic Czech lager - has been brewed for many years. It's sometimes known as "Blue."
Medium-bodied; natural, soft conditioning; hedonistic fresh herbal aroma; a flavor that is the best of fresh-baked bread, fields of grain, and spice, with a solid malt middle. Clean, sparkling, and quintessentially thirst-quenching.
Perfect with traditional Czech dishes like roast pork with dumplings & cabbage or breaded, fried cheese. The crisp effervescence of Zatec makes it a great match with lobster, monkfish or even a strong-flavored oily fish like mackerel; it can also cool the heat of spicy Asian cuisine. Serve in a stemmed Zatec goblet or fluted pils glass at 42-45 °F.
