Life On Tap Episode #346: Happy Medium (Threes Brewing Happy Medium - Foudre-Fermented Vienna Lager)

Dan cracks open and unusual style: a Foudre-Fermented Vienna Lager from Threes Brewing, Happy Medium, for this week’s brew.

Threes Brewing Happy Medium

STYLE: Foudre-Fermented Vienna Lager
INGREDIENTS: German Vienna and Pilsner Malts; German Saaz hops
ABV: 5.3%
IBU: 0
AVAILABILITY: 16oz Cans, Draft (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.


Clear, medium yellow/light orange with fine, off-white head.


Bread, toast, honey, and a nice herbality from the hops.


Similar notes from the aroma, with the outside of a brioche roll stepping in along with an earthiness from the hops, some malt sweetness on the mid-palate, and a gentle minerality on the finish.


Crisp and dry with a round mouthfeel likely from the foudre treatment.


This a delicious, sessionable beer that easily pairs with a number of foods, from pizza to wings to other typical bar fare. I could definitely see myself having a few while watching a game or just hanging out.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
