Sparta Pils
    Brewery:Brouwerij Van Steenberge
    Alcohol:5.0%

In the second half of the 19th century, in the Bavarian Alps, a new brewing method was developed as yeasts were discovered there that fermented in cold temperatures. Beers brewed in this way were called Lagers. This was in contrast to all beer yeasts known at the time that only worked in a warm environment. Beers brewed using the old method are called Ales. In combination with the use of light-colored malts and soft water, this new brewing process was perfected in the Czech town of Pilzen. And so it happened that this town gave its name to a new type of beer: the Pilsner beer or Lager.
