BAILEYS HARBOR, Wisc. — Door County Brewing Co. is thrilled to announce a new addition to their year-round lineup, Clawhammer Pilsner. Clawhammer is a classic German-style Pilsner brewed with an American point of view. Clawhammer was brewed in late February and will start seeing distribution this week across Wisconsin.
“We’ve been contemplating brewing a Pilsner for quite some time. It’s the one style of beer people have requested us to make basically since day one. We’re excited to finally be able to fulfill that request,” explains Door County Brewing Co.’s Founder and Head Brewer, Danny McMahon. “For Clawhammer, we let our Assistant Head Brewer Kyle Gregorash take the lead on recipe development as he has been a huge proponent of the style since he arrived in Door County two years ago. Our goal with this beer was to create something extremely clean, crisp and simple while still being delicious. The recipe is extremely simple, using almost all pilsner malt, and then, we used just a touch of some newer age German hops to add that slight bite of bitterness that is common in this style. We expect Clawhammer Pilsner to be the perfect beer for summer time in Door County and the rest of Wisconsin.”
Clawhammer Pilsner is available in six packs of 12 oz. cans and in half and sixth barrels from Wisconsin Distributors Inc., Flanigan Distributors, all Badger Beverage Alliance distributors, and La Crosse Beverage. Six packs of Clawhammer Pilsner will be available for to-go sales at the Door County Brewing Co. Taproom & Music Hall starting this week. Clawhammer will be tapped this week at Flying Hound Alehouse in Madison and Drink Wisconsinbly Pub & Grill in Milwaukee and will see wide distribution across Wisconsin in the coming weeks.
