Speakeasy Releases Pop Gun Pilsner


San Francisco, CA – Flavorful, easy drinking, and packaged in cans for the perfect getaway, Pop Gun Pilsner is the newest beer to join the Session 47 Series, produced by Speakeasy Ales & Lagers. Pop Gun Pilsner will be available in cans and on draft year-round. This sharp refreshing beer wakes up the senses and emboldens the spirit.

Brewed using the finest German Pilsner malt, Pop Gun Pilsner delivers a clean full body with hints of honey and malty sweetness. German Magnum, Hallertau, and Saphir hops balance the malt with a crisp bitter finish, and infuse the aroma with tangerine, spice, and floral notes. This traditional German Pilsner was lagered for 28 days and finished at 4.7% alcohol by volume.

“Pop Gun Pilsner is the session beer I’m most excited about,” said Kushal Hall, Speakeasy’s Director of Brewing Operations. “It’s already an employee favorite because it tastes like beer in the best way possible. Not beer like macro lagers, but like historic Pilsners, when they originally took over the World.”

Pop Gun Pilsner will ship to distributors in the San Francisco Bay Area during the month of September, then rollout to key markets and Speakeasy’s full distribution footprint this fall. If you can’t wait to get a taste, visit Speakeasy’s San Francisco Tap Room on Friday, September 4th, for the Pop Gun Pilsner Release Party.
