– The Biggest Little Beer Shop

It's been a few months since we had any of our brews on the shelves in Biggest Little Beer Shop. We believe today the world is a better place because you can now get your Black Eagle fix again without having to go to Langebaan. Langebaan is a kiff place. You should go there often. Larnie Lager is a common old Cream Ale brewed with pale barley, maize, German hops and lots of love. It's our take on the Cream Ales of 1820 when they brewed them more hoppy than they do today. Expect to get a crisp bite from the Northern Brewer and Mittelfruh hops on a dry finish with just a hint of sweetness coming from the delicious yellow maize we cook and add to the mash. Thirsty yet? Treat yourself to a Larnie Lager. You work hard. #larnielager #drinklikealarnie #larniebaan #laughalittle #rememberthepinkyfinger
