    GLBC Dortmunder Gold is by far the best, but that’s not to say the rest of the list isn’t on there without merit. Any brewery that can put out a beer that’s widely drank has my respect.

    Hey Truth,

    This is Zak from Shmaltz Brewing Company. Sorry you don’t like the Coney Island Lager. And sorry you don’t like any of our beers. They’re not going to be for everyone.

    That being said, we’ve got almost 15 beers with ratings over ’90’ on RateBeer. Tons of great feedback on BeerAdvocate. And we won our first GABF medal last year. There are a lot of great breweries out there who would love to be able to say the same, and we’re happy to be included in the conversation with them.

    If you don’t want to buy it, there are plenty out there that will.

    Maybe one day we’ll be able to convince you. Cheers.
    ~Zak

    Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold receives my vote.

    I’m not too sure if GLBC Dobbelrock fits in the Lager category.

    Surprised that Troegs Trogenator is not receiving more votes.

    There’s a lot of beers on this list I have not tried……yet. Print the list and start sampling!

    Karl Strauss Amber lager has the best balance of malt and hops. Has a crisp finish that never fails to brighten my day.

    I wish someone would chime in with a really hard to get lager unique to their locale and insist that this list is pointless without it. That would be really awesome. Oh, wait…. well played.

    Port Hot Rocks.

    Now what I really need is for someone to dissect the style, making my choice irrelevant.

    To my taste, Baltic Porters are the best Craft Lagers, hands down. I don’t see that style on the list, so I’ll skip the Vote. Cheers!
