Carbonation, nitrogenation – who cares as long as there’s bubbles and the beer is good right? WRONG.

Unless you’ve been under a rock or in the National Party Room, the Earth is experiencing a little something called human-induced climate change. And the culprit? Carbon dioxide.

Now, we’re not suggesting that the gas fizzing up your favourite beer is responsible for catastrophic ecological collapse, we’ll leave that up to the experts. But do you know what isn’t going to be responsible for the death of everyone you’ve ever loved? Nitrogen.

That plucky little gas not only makes up 78 percent of the air we breathe, if you bung it into some beer those extra small nitrogen bubbles are going to trick your mouth into thinking your beer is smooth, creamy and has body for days. And what better way to lead the charge for nitrogenation than brewing up a lovely Vienna lager and putting it in tinnies?

The Bridge Road Nitro Mountain Lager is exactly that. Like most traditional Vienna lagers, this one is toasty and bready with just a touch of caramel sweetness. Where the Mountain Lager differs from the norm is eschewing the European noble hops for a hefty dry-hopping of Australian varieties. So you’ve got these citrus fruit aromas layered over that classic Vienna toasty malt flavour with all the velvety mouthfeel of a nitro beer.

It sounds like a lot to take in but really, it’s a four-pack with bratwurst, mustard and sauerkraut then a lounge in front of the telly kind of arrangement. Hell, you may even forget about that existential dread for a few hours?
