A Note on This Beer
My dad’s German, so he’s always been picky about his Pilsners. His favorite is Bitburger — good luck getting him to drink anything else!
Well, Pops (and all you other German beer die-hards), I’ve finally discovered a brew that’ll make you put that six-pack of European Lagers back on the shelf!
Oregon’s Crux Fermentation Project brewed their aptly named Crux Pilz with traditional Pilsner malts, imported Czech Saaz Hops, and Sterling Hops from Oregon. It pours a gorgeous shade of yellow, with a thick and deliciously frothy head.
The scent is an invigorating bouquet of lemongrass, newly mown hay, and freshly baked bread. Each crisp, clean sip tickles your tongue with notes of floral, lemony hops, and flaky Ritz crackers.
It’s caused craft fan @Jeremy D. to quip, “Very solid Pilsner, love Crux! Every beer they make is freakin’ fantastic!”
Clearly, you don’t have to be Deutsch to brew a Pilsner worth prosting! And, unlike those famous imported brews you see at the grocery store, there are just 20 cases available of this praise-worthy Pilz!
