Celebrating 60 years since it launched, Steinlager has unveiled its newest innovation – a special edition black lager that’s dark and mysterious in colour, yet bright and crisp in flavour.

Steinlager Black joins a line-up of premium brews from this much-loved brand. Since 1958, Steinlager has led the world in the creation of premium world-class lagers – first launching the acclaimed Steinlager Classic, then Steinlager Pure and more recently, the popular Japanese-style Steinlager Tokyo Dry.

Those who’ve followed the journey will not be disappointed by Steinlager Black. Its crisp flavours are reminiscent of the award-winning Steinlager Classic but amplified – full flavour is perfectly balanced with a refreshing finish and a crisp clean bitterness. Dry-hopping adds complexity to the brew, using the same Green Bullet hops that made Steinlager Classic world famous. In a striking black bottle – it’s hard to miss.

Lion beer ambassador Kurt Gross said this is a brew for all classic lager lovers to try.

“Black lagers are rare in New Zealand, and I expect beer drinkers will find it surprisingly refreshing. What better way to celebrate 60 years of Steinlager than with the release of another world-class brew!”
