@2 and @5 A Pilsner is a lager. And the reason you don't see more lagers from microbreweries is mostly to do with scale and cost. It takes 3-4 times as long to, properly, make a lager than an ale. So, you need to have sufficient scale, or specialize in it, to make them worth doing. The extra cost of refrigeration during the fermentation and lagering period also makes them more costly to produce unless you do enormous batches like AB InBev.
