This German-style pilsner from Ale Asylum debuted in March of 2017, and due to popular demand became a year-round core offering in February of this year. And it's easy to see why. Pouring a bright golden color and capped by crisp, white foam, this pilsner presents an inviting aroma of earthy, lightly floral hops, with a touch of spice. On the palate, look for a clean, crackery pils malt core supporting a really nice noble hop profile that's fresh and floral with a touch of lemon and a hint of grassy, herbal character. Light in body, fresh, and bright, this is a very sessionable German-style pils that's easy to drink in large quantities. While a refreshing brew on its own, 12 oz. Curl makes an excellent accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes. Try pairing with seafood, such as grilled shrimp with lemon butter, or a Hawaiian-style pizza. Cheers!
Madison, Wisconsin's Ale Asylum got its start back in 2006 when partners Dean Coffey, Otto Dilba, and Otto's wife, Hathaway, began brewing in a small industrial park location. Dean and Otto met while working together at the now closed Angelic brewpub in downtown Madison. Dean dreamt of being able to brew on a larger scale than what the brewpub could offer, and to bottle his beer and sell it at retail. Dean was ready to build a business and use his marketing skills to grow it. When Angelic decided to quit brewing to focus solely on being a bar, the time was right—Ale Asylum was founded, using Angelic's cast-off brewing system.
Fast forward to 2012. Ale Asylum had grown too big for their small 8,000 sq. ft. facility, so they built a brand new 45,000 sq. ft. brewery on a 4.5-acre plot of land that provides them plenty of room to expand in the future. Their old 13-barrel brewing system was replaced by a 33-barrel system, and a much larger bottling line was purchased from Atlanta's SweetWater Brewing Company that enables them to produce up to 277 bottles per minute, as opposed to the old line's 70. In addition, visitors to the brewery can enjoy a variety of brews and pub-style food in Ale Asylum's large Tasting Room and outdoor patio. In December of 2014, Ale Asylum, in partnership with restaurateur Tim Thompson, opened the Ale Asylum Riverhouse in downtown Milwaukee, so now "inmates" (as the Ale Asylum team likes to call their fans) in Wisconsin's largest city and beer haven have an Asylum all their own. The brewery currently produces seven core beers plus around two dozen rotating seasonals and limited-run beers. For more info, call 608-663-3926 or visit aleasylum.com.
