Val and I have been discussing taking a trip to Chicago this year. We have a rather small airport in town and one of the places that Frontier flies is Chicago. If we go, we have a list of breweries that we will need to visit. One of them would be Pipeworks. Although we get distribution from them now, I always like to go to the source.
Style: German Pilsener
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Pilsner (also pilsener or simply pils) is a type of pale lager. It takes its name from the Czech city of Pilsen, where it was first produced in 1842 by Bavarian brewer Josef Groll. The world’s first blond lager, the original Pilsner Urquell, is still produced there today.”
Random: The can art for this beer makes it really look like a traditional German beer.
The beer poured with a thick, three finger, pure white head. It dissipated at a slow pace and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, dark yellow with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was that of a typical pils. I picked up some milled grain and some mineral water. The taste also had a lot of grain to it with a slight bitterness and some river stones. Mineral water is present as well. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation visible. The finish was quick with grain. This was an easy drinker that could pair well with all sorts of food. I would definitely have this one again.
