BJ's LightSwitch® Lager: Finally, a Flavorful Light Beer!

There's no shortage of mass-produced Light Beers out there, and these are quite popular. This posed a challenge to the expert craft brewers responsible for the award-winning beers at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Instead of relying on the multimillion-dollar equipment that the big beer companies have, our expert brewers turned to the passion of their craft. The result is a light and refreshing beer that uses all malted barley with a bit of fresh German Hallertau hops for impressive flavor that you just won't find in mass-produced Light Beers. There's no rice or corn in BJ's LightSwitch® Lager, and it is unpasteurized. Our brewers saw the light and made the switch to this fresh and flavorful Light Beer for smooth drinkability. Come visit the BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse near you to experience BJ's LightSwitch® Lager.
