Our Bavarian Lager is craft-brewed to celebrate the landmark 1516
The decree states that only four ingredients can be used when making beer: barley, hops, yeast and water. The result is a lager with a crisp finish and a rich golden colour.
Natural Ingredients really matter
Two-row, premium Canadian and Bavarian barley. Hallertau and Saaz hops. Bavarian yeast. Pure water. We source only the finest, natural ingredients that are truly worthy of a beer that bears the name “1516”.

- Beat eggs in a shallow bowl with garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.

Best Serving Temperature
As a quick guide, the darker the beer, the warmer the temperature to let those full flavours come on out to play.
Based on the “Lovibond Units” beer colour scale, we know that it’s a great indicator of flavour. Especially if, like ours, it’s all-natural.
