What is Ziggy Zoggy?

Ziggy Zoggy is here to party. Ziggy Zoggy is the party. A phonetic transliteration a German festival call to drink in mass volumes, when you hear its utterance the only suitable response is to raise the stein high, and then knock it down. Hard.

Inspired by one of Silver City Brewmaster Don Spencer's many excursions to Germany to study the art of lager crafting, Ziggy Zoggy is our interpretation of a Zwickelbier, a type of young lager.

Tthe first thing you'll notice when tasting Ziggy Zoggy is just how refreshing it is. When it's 90° outside, there's nothing quite like the sensation of being depth charged into chilled bliss by this satisfying beverage. Utilizing only the finest Pilsner malts that can be sourced as well as a touch of honey malt for a subtle, but unmistakable sweetness, this golden grail of a lager sticks its assertive landing with the zesty snap of the Sterling hop.

Ziggy Zoggy pairs perfectly with just about any food you throw at it. Schnitzel? Check. Tacos? Check. Pasta? Check. However, there's nothing quite like a pleasantly chilled Ziggy Zoggy chased by a classic, American cheeseburger right off the grill.

Cheers to you, cheers to summer, and cheers to Ziggy Zoggy. Oy! Oy! Oy!

The official description, as featured on the 22oz bottle label, reads as follows:

"Bright & vibrant beer for summertime celebrations! This Zwicklerbier, an uncommon style, is an unfiltered lager that balances crisp and elegant honey-like malt flavor with assertive, classic German hop character."

Ziggy Zoggy Summer Lager is now available on draft, in 22oz. bottles, and 6pks of deliciously crushable 12oz. cans all across the state of Washington.

Summer Lager 

Hops: Sterling
Malts: Pilsner Malt, Honey Malt
IBU's: 40

Limited Series: Liquid Sunshine Belgian-Style Tripel

Liquid Sunshine is a full-flavored interpretation of a Trappist Monk's dream beer. Golden-yellow in color, it shines with layers of candied sugar and bready malts and finishes dry with subtle fruit and Belgian yeast notes.

Specially formulated by Silver City Brewery's mystical wizard of all-things-Belgian, Matt Riggs, Liquid Sunshine uses a specialized yeast strain that brings about the classic fruit and spice elements the Tripel style is known for, but with a smoothness and drinkability that one would not expect from a 9% ABV beer.

Liquid Sunshine's spicy and fruity flavor profile blends exceptionally with fruit and cheese. Wafer crackers spread with brie or goat cheese and a dollop of berry preserves will send this ale into the stratosphere.
A cult favorite amongst Silver City Brewery fans, Liquid Sunshine is now available on draft and in 22oz bottles at the taproom, Silver City Restaurant & Ale House, and specialty tap houses and bottle shops throughout Western Washington.
