When we first started planning our range of Pilsners we were really intimidated - the clean, crisp taste of a great Pilsner leaves no room for error. Any brewing flaws are immediately apparent - there's nowhere to hide.
All are brewed on site in the brewery, use 100% pilsner malt, a house Bavarian yeast strain, and are lagered for at least a month to give an authentic taste.
Our initial lineup consists of three version: Pure, Yakima and Dirty.
Pure is our straight-up Pilsner. Clean, crisp, refreshing and true to style.
Yakima uses a similar base recipe, but brewed to a higher gravity (5.5%) and then dry hopped with hops from the USA's Yakima Valley. We think it's a great crossover beer - the clean taste of a Pilsner, with a beautiful fruit finish from some of our favourite hops.
Dirty Pilsner is where the Pilsner range starts to become more like our regular beers. Brewed to 6.5%, then massively dry hopped and left unfiltered.
We're really proud of this new range, and would love to know what you think.
