Mahr's Ungespundet Lager

MAHRS Ungespundet

Mahr's Ungespundet Lager...$4.99 / pint
The hazy, unfiltered lager of your dreams, with unbelievable body, freshness, and flavor. We gave a bottle of “Ungespundet” to Michael Jackson, and he promptly made it the Oktoberfest selection of the Michael Jackson “World Beer Tour.”

Mahr’s is a rare example of artisanal brewing in a land that is lately beset by increased mass production, consolidation, and narrowing of popular tastes. A larger brewery simply could not make beer like this – unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bursting with flavor. Ask the brewer what makes these beers so much better, and he will say that it is the time and care taken in the brewing, and above all the highest-quality, specially selected ingredients.

Other brewers and importers will tell you that a delicate light lager cannot survive the journey to the USA without filtering and pastuerization, but Ungespundet lager proves them all wrong. If the name is a little difficult to pronounce, just say: Give me a U!

“The unfiltered German lager of your dreams,” according to Jackson, “A true taste of Germany’s fast-vanishing artisanal tradition.”

Will this be available at New Ballas? We stopped in there Saturday and they didn't have it.

Yes, we can get it there. Whenever there is a button to order, you can hit and place an order to pick up at any of our stores also. You need not need to put in a credit card for pick up orders. That way you will get a confirmation when it is ready for you at that store
