Seeing this success, traditional lager-making breweries along the export route developed their own version of the style: strong and black, but bottom-fermented and lagered.

Strength ranges from 6 to as high as 9 percent ABV.

Its modern borders bear little relation to the ones it enjoyed a century and a half ago.... View Article
