Sun., April 22, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.

Ryan Rakel is the ombudsman and event coordinator at Urban Chestnut's Grove Brewery & Bierhall. He explains the origin of the LagerFest as a simple matter of taste.

"It's a style that we know and love, and we brew them well," Rakel opines. (He's right; try UCBC's Zwickel and fall in love all over again.) "It's the most mass-produced and popular beer, but not in craft breweries. It's not easy to do, and it's not easy to hide its flaws if it goes poorly."

UCBC challenged area and national breweries that make quality lagers to whip up a historic lager of the past in order to get a wide variety of styles. The results should be impressive.

"We should have 20 to 25 varieties on tap," says Rakel, before rattling off a list of options. "We're doing four, because we're hosting — a 1910 lager, a honey lager and what we're calling an India Pale Lager. There's a Kulmbacher clone, a couple doppelbocks, a Baltic porter and a couple of ambers."

LagerFest takes place from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Urban Chestnut's Grove Brewery & Bierhall (4665 Manchester Avenue; A commemorative glass and five samples cost $15. Additional samples can be purchased (two samples for $5).

$15 for glass and 5 samples; $5 for 2 additional samples
