PILSENEK LAGER BEEtt. It is not so many years past since Lager Beer was practically unknown in this country. Travellers returning from Vienna, Berlin, Bivaria, and other continental towns, had gone into raptures over the famous Beir Gardens," telling how the Burgo- meister and the workman, the genial aud the private, the lady and her maid, the townspeople, countryfolk, and strangers, not to speak of children and their nurses, all met on one common gronnd, straying under the Linden trees, listening to the strains of the military band playing Strauss's dreamy waltzes, or mayhap Waguer's Lohen- grin," the men drinking lager beer out of German tankards, iced, cold, and exhilarating. The num- ber of tankards consumed at one sitting were generally in proportion to the credulity of the listener, sometimes it extended to gallons, as in the case of the famous student of Heidleberg, It is a question if lager beer would have been in- troduced into England to the extent it now i, but h e extent it now ig, but for the fact that the German brewers first attacked the export trade of the English and Scotch brewers, and slowly but surely superseded them in almost every foreign market, particularly those under the British flig. Being successful, they then pushed the beer into England, and were assisted by the English residenters, who coming home brought the tast3 for laser beer with them. Up to this the German clubs in London, Manchester, &c., kepf lager beer for their members, but outside of this there was no other trade to speak of. All this is now changed at present there are no less than thirty-five Continental lager beer breweries represented in London alone, and in England there are several breweries now making this b3er. The demand for lager beer, especially the light Pilsener beer, has advanced with great strides. The public are finding out that this light beer is a very healthy beverage, acting as an ex- hilarating tonic, without any depressing effects, such as follow the consumption of heavier ales, and the taste generally is setting towards a light, palat- able beer. We have mentioned there are several breweries that brew lager beer in this country, among these the Wrexham Lager Beer Company (Limited), Wrexham, stands foremost, This brewery, built from the foundation on the German system, is complete in all its details, and has been very successful in brewing the light Pilsener beer for the past two years, their sales within six months having advanced nearly 50 per cent. The beer is a beautiful pale color, light and pleasant to the palate, and effervescing like good champagne, as a dinner beverage it is unsurpassed. The beer is matured in the Company's ice cellars for at least three months, the machineiy at the brewery being capable of making from ten to twelve tons of ice per day. This being more than is required for brewing purposes, the company are now making the I :ce from pure town's water, and selling it to the public for trade or domestic use. It is strange to think of the distant parts of the I world to which the Wrexham Pilsener Beer finds its way. When one speaks of flowery Japan, China with her teeming populations the Malay Archipelago, including the Dutch island of Java, Rangoon, and British Burmah India, from Calcutta to the mountains, and in Ceylon all the principal Australian ports Africa, both east and west coast the principal ports in South America, both east and west coast Florida, New York, and Canada, it can be seen that it has a wide domain. At Home the principal large lines of steamers take it for passengers' use, both the great Australian ¡ t;n.c.a 1 tUrt £ «-» rtrt on □ 4.1<"1.+1n m ni »»u «<3 Miln biic lUIJiUUS iibiu.tviw UV, to mention Eastern bound steamers. In the United Kingdom, from Aberdeen in the north to Bournemouth in the south, and in the wild wests of Ireland to Hull in England, a large and growing trade is being done and like carrying coals to Newcastle it has even been sent to customers in German;. We are informed that making use of their extensive malting floors and kilns the Com- pany started malting last year, and made malt suitable for sale to other brewers. So far they have met with success, having sold all they malted for the purpose during the season. With the machinery and plant at their disposal, and the efficient staff of employes at present engaged, the Company will ilave, and deserve, continued success in the future.
