It's often love at first sip. Your first beer was almost undoubtedly a lager, mostly because they're everywhere. You'll find a local lager in bar, pub, and corner store in the world — as well you should. This crisp, easy-drinking beer can be nuanced and flavorful. It's also incredibly easy to find lagers that are light on your wallet and lighter on flavor. But having traveled the globe after being created in Germany centuries ago, lager beer can vary greatly in strength, color and flavor.
Some of the most popular brand names in the world, from Bud to Coors, are lagers. When you're craving a Corona or desperate for Dos Equis, you're dreaming of a lager, and who could blame you? Lagers satisfy the palate easily thanks to their simple flavors and low alcohol by volume.
