Southern Tier Pilsner was brewed to pay homage to a region that is legendary in its brewing tradition. This beer is brewed the German way, and you can taste the difference. The hops and malts are sourced from Germany!
It’s light, easy to drink, and it goes just as good in a boot as it does in a stein. They use German Pils malt, 2-Row malt and wheat to create a firm malty character with a crisp finish. This traditional pilsner malt bill is complimented by German lager yeast and German noble hops. Pilsner’s 40 IBUs help it finish dry, the way a German pilsner should.
The brewery is outfitted with an industry-leading quality lab including a Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (GC-Mass Spec). This device is used in the lagering process to minimize the amount of diacetyl (butter) and acetaldehyde (green apple) flavors, the enemy of a clean, crisp Pilsner.
