Truly an American Classic (Pilsner)

Wednesday, 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.

p>The monks are doing it again. A release party for their latest beer simply known as the Oktoberfest is happening this saturday October 10th at Bread and Cup in the Haymarket. The party gets underway at 5:00 with a menu created to compliment the rich malty flavors of the Oktoberfest ale.

We hope to see you there!
