The Yellowhammer Imperial Pils is our summer seasonal bomber for 2015. This German style pilsner utilizes Crystal hops and German Tettnanger hops to create a crisp refreshing lager. Enjoy with a friend under the summer sun. (Description provided by company)
American Double / Imperial Pilsner
Doing what American breweries do best - taking a style to the absolute edge! This beer starts with a normal German Pilsner style, and ups both the malt and hops for much stronger flavors.
Sharing the same pale yellow color as the Pilsner, the similarities usually end there. Higher malt gives the beer both a very prominent malt backbone (sometimes quite sweet) and it also allows fermentation up into higher ABV ranges (almost 10% in some cases). More American hops also contribute to strong hop flavors - often pine resin and citrus - that balance or sometimes exceed the malts. Usually fairly noticeable alcohol flavors and aromas as well.
Best served cool, at 46-54 degrees, and in a pint glass or pilsner glass.
Beer Camp is the ultimate brewing experience. We bring beer fans into our brewery nearly every week to create their own beer with us—the more daring the better—and each spring we’ll highlight one of the small-batch standouts. Last year, Beer Camp worked overtime.
A high-gravity, ‘Imperial’ version of a traditional Bohemian Pilsner. Pale gold color with flavor and aroma balanced between rich malt and traditional Czech Saaz hops. Brewed with premium American malt, American and Czech hops, and a traditional German lager yeast.
Our Fathom India Pale Lager combines time-honored lagering techniques with the hop profiles of a West Coast IPA recipe. The cold-fermenting lager yeast provides a clean base that allows the citrus and pine aromas from the hops to really shine.
When you brew coffee using only half the water, you get a pretty potent pot of java, right? Which got us thinking, why not try that with beer? So we took our original Orange Blossom Pilsner, cut the water and voi-frickin’-la: pot o’ awesome sauce we call OBP2.
Arguably our most well-balanced beer, Small Craft Warning seems at once hop-forward and malt-forward; our brewers debate over which flavor force prevails in the beer. Small Craft exemplifies a robust pilsner—it’s crisp, well-carbonated, and slightly sweet.
We promised we wouldn't brew an IPA, and this is the closest we've come to breaking that promise.
