Blue Point Brewing Company Toasted Lager Now on Tap

Blue Point Brewing Company’s award-winning Toasted Lager is now available (draught/6.)  We asked the experts what they thought:

Bar manager Ryan Goodspeed: “Like Magic Hat, it’s one of those beers down here that’s hard to find in bottles.  We’re happy to be one of the few places you’ll find it on tap. A perfect beer to close out the summer with.”

Sous chef and home brewer Matt Hinckley: “It’s a lager that can stand up to our heavier salads.  I’d have one with the BLT or crispy pig ear.”

South Florida Beer Blog’s Dan Crisafi: “Toasted Lager is a great easy drinking beer. Not to offensive to the light beer drinker but also not lacking the flavor that people expect from a craft beer. The toasted malt adds a great roasted taste that gives the beer a bit of a nutty flavor.”

The brewery explains that its flagship beer is copper in color and made from six different malts including: English Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Wheat and Belgian Caravienna. “Toasted” refers to  the flames from its direct-fire brew kettle.  Blue Point, out of Patchogue, was Long Island, New York’s first commercial brewery, and beers are all natural and poured without any preservatives.  Bottom’s up.
