Rock the Dock: Cisco Brewers Releases New Seasonal Dock Lager


Dock Lager offers up a "wicked dark brew" that can be enjoyed all season long

Cisco Brewers is launching its new seasonal Dock Lager this month, just in time for that iconic time of year in New England when the temps cool down, leaves start to brighten, and beer drinkers start craving something with a little more body than a lager but aren't quite ready for an Imperial IPA or a stout. Cisco Brewers Dock Lager hits the sweet spot – pouring wicked dark with a fluffy tan head and aromas of chocolate and biscuit, while remaining sessionable at 5.0% ABV. Dock Lager is already a hit on draft at Cisco Brewers pubs, and now fans across New England will be able to pick up four-packs of 16-ounce cans to enjoy all season long.

"We decided to do something a little unexpected and buck the pumpkin trend with this year's fall seasonal," said Mark Valeriani, Cisco Brewers Lead Brewer. "Pumpkin beers are great, but we wanted to a brew that could take us from September through December. Dock Lager hits all the right notes: it has the complexity, character, and warmth of an Oktoberfest brew, but at 5.0% ABV, it offers something lighter that can be enjoyed all season long."

Dock Lager is the latest new beer to launch featuring Cisco Brewers' updated brand and packaging design that celebrates its New England heritage and coastal lifestyle. Throughout the year, Cisco Brewers has been transitioning its full portfolio to reflect brand redesign, including a new year-round offering, Wandering Haze IPA, that is already a top five hazy IPA in Boston per Nielsen.

After a day spent dockside in New England, you want a beer that's easy, smooth, and gives you a little bit of a sweet reward for outlasting the weather. And that's exactly what inspired the recipe for Dock Lager. Dock Lager is perfect for a day out on the water, a fall tailgate or Oktoberfest, or even skiing the east. This brew has a fluffy-tan head, tastes of chocolate and biscuit, is medium-bodied and wicked dark.

ABV: 5.0%

IBU: 21
