The Czech Republic drinks more beer per capita than any other nation in the world. The majority of beer consumed is their famous pilsner, followed by its lesser-known cousin, the Czech dark lager. Our Beer Campers wanted to brew a stronger version of this style, which the Czechs refer to as “speciál pivo”. We start with a simple grist of Pilsner and Munich malts to provide the base, to which we add a pinch of black malt for a deep, dark color without heavy roast character. Expect layers of smooth malt flavor balanced by spicy noble hops and a clean finish, perfect for a cool Autumn afternoon.
