Tarnation Maine Lager is brewed in a style that is truly unique to American brewing and is one of the largest-scale lagers produced in New England. Tarnation is dry and balanced beyond belief; malt-forward and drinkable; rich and complex but approachable and true-to-style. Not your Dad’s canned beer; this lager, which ferments with an authentic San Francisco lager yeast, requires several weeks of cold conditioning (“lagering”), but we think it’s worth the wait. At-home at the dinner table or in the daypack, Tarnation is arguably the most versatile beer in the Baxter portfolio (and, according to the Portland Press Herald, “one of my favorite beers in the Baxter lineup”). Pairs with: Chicken and turkey; shellfish; and lightly-browned meats, like pork chops. It’s also a great match for richer goat cheeses, like Humboldt Fog, and lighter cheddars and jack cheeses.
