Ales vs. Lagers

Hello all, I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about a common question I get regarding the differences between ales and lagers.  Ale is a very broad category that includes styles such as IPA’s, Stouts, Porters, Hefeweizen, Belgian beers, and more. Types of lagers include American Light Lagers (ex. Budweiser), Pilsners, Bocks, Dunkel, California Common/Steam (ex. Anchor Steam), and more.

July Wines Under $10

By Joey Bowling, Beer and Wine Manager, Beer and Wine Department

Featuring two wines from Austria. Pannonica Red and White, $9.99 each. Pannonica is what the Romans called the land near the Danube River, where these wines are from.

The white has a nose of apricot, roses, and lime, followed by apple and mineral on the palate. Pair it with fresh lobster or baked chicken breast.

The red features dark berries and black peeper on the nose, with juicy blackberry and spice on the tongue. This is an excellent red to pair with BBQ ribs or burgers.
