Fightin' Hokies Lager

About the beer

Fightin’ Hokies Lager is described as a classic Munich-style Helles lager with balance between pleasant malt sweetness and herbal noble hop character. At 5 percent alcohol by volume, it is clean, crisp, and refreshing.

Brewed in collaboration between Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, one of the top programs of its kind nationwide, and the international award-winning Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Fightin’ Hokies Lager is a tribute to the fighting spirit that unites us. Virginia Tech and Hardywood share a history of giving back, environmental stewardship, and the pursuit of excellence. Their partnership has culminated in a beer of unparalleled quality, brewed in Virginia with renewable resources.


Registration is $10 and $5 of that fee supports Food Science and Technology student scholarships and expands research.
