Port City Brewing Company Releases Lager Series German Pilsner

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Port City Brewing Company announces the release of German Pilsner, the next brand in our lager series. The first pilsner was created in 1842, in Plzen, Bohemia, now part of the Czech Republic. This innovative style has become the world’s most copied beer. The German interpretation of a pilsner, is a little lighter in body and color, with a firmer and more lingering hop character.

Looking to Germany for inspiration, our German Pilsner is drier and blonder than the classic Bohemian-style. Brewed with pilsner malt and noble hops, German Pilsner has a floral and spicy aroma, flavors of lightly sweet malt, finishing firm and dry on the palate. This refreshing pilsner is served in the “Keller” style meaning unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

GermanPilsner will be available as a draft only offering in VA, DC, & MD starting Friday, August 16, 2019. Details on our Tasting Room release event and market activity below.
