pFriem’s Hoppy Lager takes a classical approach to brewing Pilsner with West Coast twist. This beer is brewed in the same vein as our other German inspired lagers- high quality pilsner malt, step-mashed, lagered, and deep cold conditioned, but is given a heavy whirlpool charge of hops and is dry hopped. We us new school German hops to accentuate this beer- Huell Melon, Hallertau Blanc, Mandarina Bavaria. These hops give the beer a unique fruitiness combined with herbal and earthy noble flavors. The result is a crisp, clean, hop forward, and very fragrant Pils.
