Northern German Pilsner (Lager) 4.2% ABV 42 IBUs
This beer is a twist on the Northern German style Pilsner, also known as Dortmunder or Export style Pilsner. These beers made use of hard water, like that of Lafayette, for that reason more malt was used and just enough hops to balance the beer. Rather than change the “locally raised water”, we have added some Caramalt to our Pilsner malt bill to give this beer some additional malt character. We’ve chosen Santium hops, which have a slightly spicy character, in a very simple hop schedule. The result is a clean finishing Pilsner beer, unique to the Lafayette area and our wonderful local water.
Available May through August
