Brues Alehouse Brewing Co
Our Impression: Our goal as brewers is to travel and drink beer from the source, in it's purest and correct form. We recently traveled to the Czech Republic (Prague) to explore their beer styles, as we knew they create incredible lagers. In the past, we brewed a 10° Plato Czech Lager and loved it. We wanted to brew something similar, but with a little more body to it and use only Saaz hops as is done with a lot of European Pilsners and Light Lagers. We understand that with this style of beer, and with most lagers, it takes an impeccable process, along with adequate lagering times. Our Czech 11° received nothing short of that. After spending nearly 12 weeks Lagering and an Ultra Fine filtering, we are very proud to release this amazing beer, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
