What is Krausening?

Commercial brewers and homebrewers alike employ experimental and traditional brewing techniques to get their craft beer just right. One of those techniques is Krausening, a traditional German approach that eschews adding any sugars or extras to the fermented beer, with the goal of producing a "cleaner" beer. In summary, and ultimate effect, to kräusen a beer is to add carbonation to it.

The Big Lake was made for beer drinking.

Lakes Region (NH) breweries are brewing mighty fine craft beer, from the Lone Wolfe Brewing Company in Wolfeboro to ultra-local nanobrewery Squam Brewing.
