German-style Pilsener // 4.8% ABV // 35 IBU // 10.8 P
light body + noble hops + sharp
This German-style Pilsener was brewed specifically to be our entry into the Bitburger Challenge. When one of the most famous German breweries is judging your ability to make German lager bier, you have to make it authentic. This beer was triple decoction mashed with malt from a little known (in America) malt house in Northern Franconia, hopped with German noble varieties, fermented at 8°C, lagered for eight weeks, and 100% naturally carbonated. End result is a clean, bright, and refreshing beer with cutting minerality and a deep malt backbone.
