A lager fermented at ale (warmer) temperatures. California Common represents the best characteristics of both of these styles: the rich, malty body of an ale balanced with the crisp, clean & refreshing flavor of a lager. St. Florian's Brewery California Common rounds off with mellow fruitiness & an underlying earty hoppiness. Native style to the San Francisco Bay Area.
Barbeque & spicy cuisine, oysters, lamb chops, tangy cheese, sushi, bread pudding… just about anything (especially the quintessential San Francisco treats: crab, clam chowder, sourdough bread, cioppino, & on)!
