As well as maturation in cold storage, most lagers are also distinguished by the use of the Saccharomyces pastorianus yeast, a "bottom-fermenting" yeast that also ferments at relatively cold temperatures. It is possible to use lager yeast in a warm fermentation process, such as with American steam beer , while German Altbier and Kölsch are brewed with a Saccharomyces cerevisiae top-fermenting yeast at a warm temperature, but with a cold storage finishing stage, and classified as obergäriges lagerbier top-fermented lager beer.

Until the 19th century, the German word lagerbier de referred to all types of bottom-fermented , cool-conditioned beer, in normal strengths. In Germany today, however, the term is mainly reserved for the prevalent lager beer styles of southern Germany, [4] " Helles " pale and " Dunkel " dark.

Pilsner , a more heavily hopped pale lager , is most often known as "Pilsner", "Pilsener", or "Pils". Other lagers are Bock , Märzen , and Schwarzbier. In the United Kingdom, the term "lager" commonly refers to pale lagers derived from the Pilsner style.

While cold storage of beer, "lagering", in caves for example, was a common practice throughout the medieval period, bottom-fermenting yeast seems to have emerged as a hybridization in the early fifteenth century. In , a team of researchers claimed to have discovered that Saccharomyces eubayanus is responsible for creating the hybrid yeast used to make lager.

Based on the numbers of breweries, lager brewing became the main form of brewing in Bohemia between and , as shown in the following table: In the 19th century, prior to the advent of refrigeration, German brewers would dig cellars for lagering and fill them with ice from nearby lakes and rivers, which would cool the beer during the summer months. To further protect the cellars from the summer heat, they would plant chestnut trees , which have spreading, dense canopies but shallow roots which would not intrude on the caverns.

The practice of serving beer at these sites evolved into the modern beer garden. The rise of lager was entwined with the development of refrigeration , as refrigeration made it possible to brew lager year-round brewing in the summer had previously been banned in many locations across Germany , and efficient refrigeration also made it possible to brew lager in more places and keep it cold until serving.

Lager beer uses a process of cool fermentation , followed by maturation in cold storage. The German word "Lager" means storeroom or warehouse. The yeast generally used with lager brewing is Saccharomyces pastorianus. It is a close relative of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast used for warm fermented ales. While prohibited by the German Reinheitsgebot tradition, lagers in some countries often feature large proportions of adjuncts , usually rice or maize.
