Dark Lager by Utopian Brewing

Dark Lager, 5.4%

Utopian's take on a Bavarian Dunkel style. Brewed with British dark malts and a traditional double decoction mash, teasing out a bouquet of caramelized nuts and bread crust. A slow, low-temperature fermentation and over four weeks of cold lagering, result in a beer with pours a rich amber with malt complexity and exceptional drinkability. Nutty, rich, full-bodied, unfiltered, and beautifully balanced.


The live tasting of this beer was on 1st April 2021 #BeerBods

The Story

Utopian Brewing launched in the spring of 2019 with the ambitious goal of creating a range of lagers made entirely from British Ingredients. The brewery is run by managing director Richard Archer who explains how the idea for Utopian came about. 

“ We believe lager drinkers have been largely bypassed by the craft brewing “revolution”. We can see no reason though that they don’t crave the more interesting, quality products from independent producers just like the IPA drinkers and we intend to help redress the balance by creating a range of interesting but accessible craft lagers.” 

Based in the picturesque countryside of Devon, Utopian are proud of where they come from and use it to their advantage when crafting each and every one of their beers. 

“Our rural site has many advantages over more urban locations not least that the local water, drawn from the farm's own natural source, is soft and well suited to the production of lagers. The ready availability of additional space also facilitates the installation and operation of a  range of sustainable energy sources, including biomass boilers and solar panels, which will not only reduce our carbon footprint but also operating costs.”
