2017 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal in German Pilsner Category! Our Brewmaster trained and brewed in Berlin, but as a NW American, he still loves his hops. Of all the Pilsner substyles, the one brewed in Northern Germany is the driest and crispest with a great hop character. Brewed according to the German Purity Law of 1516, we use German malts, hops and yeast. Herkules and Hersbrucker hops provide the spicy and snappy hop flavor and aroma.
The German Pils is a complex malt/grainy beer with a distinctive and spicy German hop character with the balance generally towards the hops.
Suggested Food Pairings
Pilsners are excellent with German cuisine and spicy dishes like Indian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese or other Asian foods. Poultry and fish are also great choices. Sharp cheeses like cheddar and blue work very well.
