More About This
Hobo Craft Czech Lager
Hobo beer matures and meditates for two months. The longer a lager can relax, the better it will taste and, in addition to the ingredients and the fermentation, it’s here where Hobo lager differs from mainstream, mass-market lagers.
Time equals taste.
What’s in Hobo?
Hops: Hobo Czech Lager is brewed using a trio of Czech Saaz hops, all grown in Northern Bohemia’s mineral-rich, red soil. Saaz: The Saaz hop is hailed for its high quality aroma. The variety has developed over many years from hops grown around the town of Zatec. It’s one of only four ‘noble’ hops and adorns the lager with subtle spice, a citrus zest and a bracing biter bite. It’s grassy, herbal, earthy and spicy all at the same time. Sladek: A hybrid Saaz hop variety loved by lagers because it can be used for both its bitterness and its clean grassy and earthy aroma. In Hobo Czech Lager, it is added for its aromatic qualities – floral and pine. Premiant: Grown in Zatec, Premiant bring beautiful balanced bitterness and gives the lager its snappy, satisfying quench quality.
Moravian Malted Barley: All the malted barley is two-row spring barley grown in Moravia, a region between bohemia and Slovakia which is famed for its lush fertile soil enriched by a seven-strong lattice of rivers.
Water: Sourced and sand-filtered from 15m below the brewery cellars.
Yeast: The brewery propagates its own bespoke yeast and also oversees the library for all Czech yeast.
