We are feeling a little "Lakewood" today

Lakewood Brewing Co. is a local brewery in Garland, Texas. We were feeling a little "Lakewood today," so we're tapping in their Lager, Zomer Pilz, and Rock Ryder! Here are the key statistics.
Beer Name: Lakewood Lager
Beer Style: Vienna-Style Lager
ABV: 4.6%
IBU: 23
SRM: 12
This amber lager starts with a subtle caramel aroma. The coppery hue draws you into its balanced flavor of light malty sweetness and round noble hop bitterness. It finishes dry and clean. Leaving your palate refreshed for another glass.

Beer Name: Zomer Pils (Summer Seasonal)
Beer Style: Czech-Style Pilsner
ABV: 4.8%
IBU: 34
SRM: 3
In summer, Belgians head to the nearest beach, while Texans typically race towards the nearest source of shade. That's because the European sun is far friendlier than the fiery ball glowing over the Lone Star State. Combat the heat with our Zomer Pils. Brewed with Belgian pilsner malt and noble hops, this traditional pilsner is light, crisp, and refreshing. So let that sun keep on burning.

Beer Name: Rock Ryder
Beer Style: Rye/Wheat Beer
ABV: 4.8 %
IBU: 20
SRM: 4
This is a wheat beer for the masses. It pours with a white head and has a cloudy straw color. The addition of rye malt gives it a complexity and subtle pepperiness that's only accentuated by the hops. It's light and refreshing with just enough bite and flavor to quench a Texas summer sized thirst.
All three beers weigh in at under 5% ABV, making them good session beers for the hot Texas summer! The Amsterdam Bar is proud to offer local craft beers like Lakewood Brewing Co.'s line of beers.
