Forest Road Brewing Co.
About the beer
Our crispyboi classic / All British Lager.
POSH lager was developed by Pete in the Summer of 2017 after only selling WORK IPA for 16 months. The second core beer of the Forest Road family was developed specifically to be an accessible, filtered, all grain lager beer to provide drinkers with a different choice to the glucose-laden mass-produced corporate beers that still dominate the market till this day.
3 years later, POSH lager’s consistency and drinkability have been noticed by the likes of many notable quality-forward hospitality operations and dominates Forest Road’s sales volume at 80%. It show’s no signs of slowing down.
Brewed with UK Challenger and Kent hop varietals, a subtle cereal malt profile, and cold-fermented prior to its 18 day cold-conditioning cycle
About the Brewery
Forest Road Brewing Company was founded by Bostonian brewer Pete Brown (not the writer) in the Summer of 2015. Pete brewed his first batch of beer in a 1-bedroom apartment in Queens, NYC in the Summer of 2009. When his hobby turned into obsession this led him to a career in professional brewing.
After leaving a senior position at Camden Town Brewery in early 2015 Pete moved into a house on Forest Road in Dalston, East London during a brewery-change. There he met his four new best pals and started the trial brews of what would become the first core pale ale of Forest Road Brewery, WORK. Once the recipe was perfected it was time to scale up - and after scouring the UK he ended up meeting the Leroy family in Boezinge, Belgium via email. Pete brought 75 kg of American hops over on the Eurostar and the first batch of beer was born. Since then, POSH lager was born and now all production has moved to the UK.
