Mill Street Original Organic Lager

Summertime… la la la, however the song goes…. sing it, folks, because it’s finally nice out. And there is no better way to truly feel summery than to sit outside on a warm evening with a cold lager in your hand. At at Toronto’s Mill Street Brewery, there is a lovely Organic lager on the offer that will satisfy your craving for a cold one while keeping you on the organic straight and narrow. Mill street has used imported organic New Zealand Hallertau Hops and Breiss Organics 2-Row Brewers Malt to create this brew.

From their website: “This 100% all natural Organic Lager is Ontario‚Äôs first organic lager, and contains no pesticides, insecticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Brewed with imported malt and hops, this 4.2% European-style pilsner offers a light, crisp and refreshing flavour, with a clean finish. At 4.2%, it’s on the lower side of alcohol content as well. We’ve tried it, and they’re right: It’s a lovely, light lager, perfect for a summer day.

Interestingly, these come in little 192 ml bottles, and not the regular 300-someodd ml size. I guess so that it will stay cold while you get to the bottom? Who knows. It’s available at the Beer Store in Ontario and at fine establishments near you.

UPDATED: Last time I was at the beer store, the friendly beer guy told me that they had a SKU in the checkout for regular-sized bottles. They will be priced the same as the rest of the Mill Street brews (ie. premium pricing), so more expensive than your basic Labatt’s Blue, but worth it.

    The smaller bottles are kind of annoying because if memory serves correct it’s the same price as the other (regular sized) Mill St beers.

    All the Mill St beers are yummy though.
