Dial ‘Z’ for Zwickel is a rare new creation from the Beau’s brew team, a hazy copper-coloured lager called a zwickelbier – a beer so über-fresh, it tastes like you walked right up to our tanks and poured it yourself. The flavour and aroma are ripe with bready, yeasty goodness and fresh grassy notes, and a finely balanced hop presence. Zwickelbiers are seriously not meant for aging, and best served… right now!

HISTORY & STYLE
Closely related to kellerbier, zwickelbier literally means beer sampled directly from the maturation vessel in the beer cellar. This German-origin beer takes on the character of the base style: in the case of Dial ‘Z’, an amber lager.
This beer exhibits fresh bready/yeasty notes that mingle with the dark lager malt backbone and the significant herbal/grassy hop aroma. Balanced and clean with noticeable hop presence, you’ll be hitting “redial” on Dial ‘Z’!
