Westfalen Exportbier is now on tap at Sunnyland.
Originating in the city of Dortmund, Export Lagers were up until 1990 the most popular style of beer in Germany, and are renowned for their soft, rounded malt character. Our rendition, a recipe created by Bellingham home-brewer Jason Mantello (winner of the Best of the Bay Homebrew Competition), has lovely crackery malt character, as well as subtle herbal and floral hop notes. Exquisitely well balanced, Westfalen Exportbier is smooth and sessionable, with a slightly sweet bready finish. Prost!
