s part of their ongoing Migrator Series, Northeast Portland’s Migration Brewing will be releasing “Lord Dark Helmet”, a  Schwarzbier aka black lager this Saturday, January 19, 2013.

Migration uses subtle American hops to create a NW interpretation of a classic German lager recipe. With a full, crisp coffee flavor coupled with hints of vanilla and a smooth finish this is the perfect winter session beer.  May the Schwarz be with you!
