HISTORY OF VIENNA LAGER
Vienna Lager is one of the most historically important lager styles. The template for modern Vienna Lagers is the beer brewed by Anton Dreher at the Schwechater brewery in Austria in the 1830s. Dreher combined English malting techniques with the bottom-fermenting yeasts used in Munich to create a beer similar to the Märzenthen brewed in Munich. This beer became widely popular and influenced the development of modern light and amber lagers throughout Europe.
Late in the nineteenth century, Austrian immigrant brewers brought the Vienna Lager with them to Mexico. While the style has all but died out in Austria itself, there is still a living tradition of Vienna lagers brewed in Mexico.
