When we set forth to brew Southern Tier Pilsner, we wanted 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. We even sourced the hops and malts from Germany!
It’s light, easy to drink, and it goes just as good in a boot as it does in a stein. We 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.
Our brewery is outfitted with an industry-leading quality lab including a Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (GC-Mass Spec). We use this device in our lagering process to minimize the amount of diacetyl (butter) and acetaldehyde (green apple) flavors, the enemy of a clean, crisp Pilsner. Put simply, we take pilsner lagers seriously and so should you.
Available in our Overpack’d 15 can variety pack!
