A new variety pack from Schlafly Beer is ready for liftoff.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on Sat., July 20, Schlafly is releasing the Lunar Lager sampler pack.
The new variety pack includes four commemorative lagers: Lift-Off Lager, Apollo’s Orbit Black Lager, Moon Walk Dunkel and The Eagle Has Landed American Lager. "Apollo 11 is one of the most exciting feats for humankind, in our nation and beyond, and its impact clearly lives on to 2019," Schlafly founding brewer Stephen Hale said in a statement. "We thought that the 50th anniversary of such a cultural phenomenon deserved a special beer to celebrate, so we are releasing four."
The Lunar Lager pack also features special packaging, from images of memorable moments from the historic moon landing down to the fonts themselves, which are inspired by popular records, albums, ads and science fiction from the 1960s.
Each Lunar Lager pack features three bottles of the following beers:
- Lift-Off Lager: "This unfiltered German lager calls back to the moments during one of the most exciting accomplishments in America. The light golden, hazy beer is an ode to the haze that filled the air that day."
- Apollo’s Orbit Black Lager: "Although it’s as dark as the view outside Apollo’s window, this lager is smooth, crisp and drinkable."
- Moon Walk Dunkel: "This dark, malty German lager pays tribute to the two brave men who strolled across the moon 50 years ago. The dark brown lager is balanced in both malty sweetness and hops."
- The Eagle Has Landed American Lager: "Light, golden and refreshing, this true American lager pays homage to the famous phrase that has been cemented as one of the most memorable sayings in our history."
The Lunar Lager variety pack is available for $13.99 across Schlafly’s distribution area.
