Italian Pils on Blanc

Brues Alehouse Brewing Co

Our Impression: We are always excited to brew a Pilsner. Specifically Bavarian and Bohemian style Pilsners. These beers exhibit a very strong hop attitude which is less commonplace throughout the lager brewing nations of Europe. The potency of European Noble hops is on a lower level than most American Hops. Noble hops are delicate, spicy, earthy and very pleasant, which creates a different type of hop character, in comparison to IPAs, when used in high quantities. In our experience, it takes a very large amount of nobles to really gain the appropriate hop expression for this style. This beer takes the best of traditional German and Czech pilsner brewing and adds a fresh hop layer with a dose of Hallertau Blanc dry hops.
