Piercing Pils

 
ABV: 
6.0
IBU: 
35
Availability: 
Seasonal
Original Release Date: 
12/2013

A Perry-Pils hybrid, Piercing Pils is a Czech Style Pilsner brewed with a White Pear Tea and Pear juice.  Both the juice and the tea were added in the kettle during the whirlpool (after the boil) for maximum flavor and aroma contribution.  The Pear fruit complexity pierces right through the spicy Czech Saaz hops beautifully, adding a gentle acidity to this pale lager that makes for a crisp refreshing sipper.  Amarillo hops add nuanced citrus notes that meld perfectly with the fruit.

Here's Sam talking about the beer from when we launched our first test batch at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub...
