Truly an American Classic (Pilsner)

October 28th, 2009

In the halcyon days before the “Great Experiment” of prohibition, American breweries produced a fuller bodied hoppy treat now known as Classic American Pilsner. The Monks take on this classic beer is to use malt, corn, noble German hops and the very same yeast from the ancient Augustiner brewery that we used in our Oktoberfest. Full and hoppy but with a refreshing dry finish this is the perfect beer for a tailgate party or just watching the game on the tube. At just over 6% a.b.v. it’s a beer that will hold your attention but not put you to sleep.  So pull a pint, sit back, and experience an American Pilsner as it used to taste.  A Classic in the making.

Octoberfest is tasting GREAT!

September 9th, 2009

A quick update for all of the beer loving people throughout the state of Nebraska and beyond, the Octoberfest beer sitting in the fermenters is clearing up nicely and tasting GREAT!  Look for the notes on the release party for that beer coming soon.

 The brothers (minus brother Joshua due to family activites) brewed up their famous Classic American Pilsner this past Sunday.  All temps and calculations were hit and the beer should be ready in the next 6-8 weeks.

Something of note in the coming week is the release party of the Brothers Cup.  In case you have been living under a rock that is our Belgian Pale Ale great for quenching even the deepest of thirsts.  The release party will be held at Zen’s Lounge at 122 N. 11th street in Lincoln NE.  The party starts at 7:00 pm.  Be there or be square!
