Wet Hop Pils
Made with freshly harvested German wet hops and balanced with pilsner malt. Assertive hop bitterness with notes of melon, citrus, and herb.
This is a bigger version of a classic Bavarian Pils, with the addition of freshly harvested, unkilned, German wet hops. Unkilned hops are sometimes referred to as wet hops because they have not been dried following harvest. Very few German breweries use wet hops because this practice is not typical, and obtaining these hops in the US in not at all common. SBC was able to use some handy connections to import these very special hop directly from Martin Schmailzl, a German hop farmer with an innovative method of preserving wet hops.
Meat, cheese, bread, and seasonal vegetables. But with a beer this delicious, some folks may savor this beer neat.
