A Note on This Beer
“The most influential beer Americans have never heard of.”
This is how brewers and craft beer fans describe Tipopils — the single beer behind Italian-style Pilsners in America, and the inspiration for True Respite Brewing Company’s Sparrow.
Italian-style Pilsners are an emerging style in craft — they take the ordinal German Lager to an enlightened, palate-pleasing level with volumes of delicate, dry-hopped European hop varietals.
When American brewers first got a taste of this unique style, they couldn’t wait to bring it home!
True Respite makes the style their own in their latest Lager series. Sparrow starts with a rustic bready backbone using Italian-malted Eraclea Pilsner malts, and adds loads of European Spalt and Hersbrucker Noble Hops for a citrus and earthy pine finish. Each gulp is crisp, clean, and immensely drinkable.
Italian Pilsners are built for sessioning, and at a smooth-sipping 5% ABV, Sparrow is no exception. It would be a refreshingly delicious accompaniment to any spicy dish — whether that’s pasta arrabiata or chorizo tacos is up to you. Saluti!
Take a respite from the ordinary, and taste the latest in this hyped-up Old World meets New World style. Just make sure to get it while you can — True Respite very rarely repeats a beer; they’re too busy innovating and dreaming up their next craft!
