Experimental Hop Pilsner

A new take on the Pilsner style

We got access to two new hops that could change the way we think about adding hop flavor to pilsners. These hops, Nug-033 and Steiner 04190, reflect some of herbal and spicy character of their European predecessors, but with a new twist. Notes of lemongrass and citrus are balanced by a slight honey flavor and a smooth, chamomile-like hop aroma.

Brewing is as much art as science, and all beer specifications and raw materials are subject to change at our brewers' creative discretion.

  • Ale versus Lager

    All beer is broken down into two camps: ale or lager. The principal difference is the variety of yeast. Ales use a yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae, referred to as “top fermenting” because of the frothy foam created during fermentation. Lagers use a yeast called Saccharomyces pastorianus, called “bottom fermenting” because of the slower, restrained fermentation process. Ales are fermented at warmer temperatures and generally produce more fruity and spicy aromas from the yeast. Lagers are fermented at cooler temperatures and produce cleaner, more reserved aromas, which let the malt and hops shine through.
