In the past year, I’ve really started getting into pilsners. If a brewery can do a good job with a pils, typically they can knock the other styles out of the park. Let’s see how this relatively local pilsner was.
Style: German Pilsener
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This month, we’ve partnered with Bergen County Protect & Rescue, a no-kill animal welfare facility in Cliffside Park. It’s no secret that we’re pet friendly. Our own brewery dog/manager Marjie is a rescue from BC – Protect & Rescue. We can’t imagine our taproom without her and wanted to give back where we could. That’s why for the month of July, a portion of all lager sales, package or draft will be donated to BC – Protect and Rescue to help them continue their mission. So next time you enjoy a Hackensack Lager in our taproom, you’re also helping out our furred friends! Marjie thanks you!”
Random: This beer is canned and on tap at the brewery.
This beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. It dissipated quickly, but still left some lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, golden-yellow color with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of mineral water along with river stones and milled grain. The taste was much of the same. It had a lot of mineral water and river stones. It was very crisp and went down easily, especially since the body was light with lots of carbonation. The finish was quick with mineral water. A can of this was $1.92, which came to $.16 per ounce. I thought this beer was quite good and could easily become a regular in my fridge.
