What type of beer is pasteurized?

What type of beer is pasteurized?

Most lager is pasteurised, but the brand claims forgoing this process is what creates the taste of its products, which include the its flagship Hells Lager. Unpasteurised beers must be kept fresh by being continuously chilled and consumed as close to the production date as possible.

What does non pasteurized beer mean?

For the most part keg beer brewed and packaged in kegs in the U.S. is not pasteurized. During the packaging process non-pasteurized draft beers are sterile filtered and chilled to the point that any surviving bacteria, which could ferment the beer, become dormant.
