A Tasting of Pilsners
Be sure to join us for the DB15's first ever pilsner event!
Why was pilsner chosen? Well, regardless of what you call
it – Bohemian Pilsner, German Pils, American Pilsner,
Czech Pilsner. –the style is one of the most popular types of
lager beers in the world. Pilsners are thoroughly refreshing
and perfect for a warm Sunday in June meeting.
The beer takes its name from Plzeň, a city in Bohemia, then
in the Austrian Empire, now in the Czech Republic, where it
was first produced in 1842 - the world’s first blond lager.
The story of it's creation actually starts in 1838 when 36
barrels of local Plzen beer were deemed undrinkable and
dumped out in the town square. That led to the formation
of a state-owned brewery which eventually would become
Pilsner Urquell. There, the town's brewing problems were
eventually remedied by a combination of new malt, local
hops, a new bottom-fermenting lager yeast strain from
Bavaria and of course,skilled brewers.
The brewer usually given individual credit for the creation of
pilsner is Josef Groll who was brought in from Bavaria..
His stoke of genius was the use of Saaz hops which is the
hop that still defines the Pilsner category to this day.
Saaz hops are busting with flavor. They provide a
uniquely spicy, almost peppery/herbal buzz which is one
reason why pilsner doesn’t taste like every other lager.
Interestingly, the emergence of pilsner just happened to
coincide with huge advancements in the field of glass
manufacturring, which meant that it was simply lucky
enough to come along at a time when clear glass drinking
vessels became widespread the first time—the perfect way
to display the clarity and brightness of a pils.
We will be tasting an array of some of the finest pilsners
in the world. Don't miss this one time only event!
