@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.

@23 Until you move to subsistence plant gathering just put a lid on the cruelty talk.
I'm not talking human exceptionalism, just the food chain. We are top, for now, so I see no issue in taking advantage of that. It's evolution after all.
