Drink this dark lager from Modern Brewery

After Dark, a new Munich-style dark lager from Modern Brewery, showcases notes of roasted malt and mild nuttiness. It pours a beautiful, dark amber color with an almond-flesh colored head. Brewed with German malt, yeast and hops, this 5.5%-ABV lager is designed for chilly weekend evenings around a fire with friends. It would pair perfectly with a nice burger or a skillet-cooked sausage. 

Four-pack: $11. Modern Brewery, 5231 Manchester Ave., St. Louis,
