A Forgotten Style No More
Brewer Tom Mondor would like to introduce you to Summit Unchained 25: Vienna-Style Lager, his second addition to the Unchained series. A style that has gone mostly extinct in its area of origin, Unchained 25 features notes of toast, biscuit, and caramel from Barke Vienna and CaraFoam malt, plus balanced bitterness from spicy and herbal Hallertau Mittlefruh and German Perle hops.
Inspired by a past trip to Germany, Mondor relied on authentic German ingredients and traditional brewing methods to create a Vienna-Style Lager that is truly representative of those first brewed in Europe during the early 1800s.
Despite featuring all-German ingredients, Vienna-Style Lager is named after a city in Austria, an entirely different country. This is because, in part, Austrian brewers introduced the style to Mexico and the rest of North America beginning in the 1860s.
