This German-style pilsner presents a pale straw color topped with a voluminous head of white foam - a tall pilsner glass is definitely the right call here to provide room for that foam and to allow a pleasant view of all the tiny bubbles wandering up to the surface. The 100% Saaz hop contribution delivers classic noble hop aromas with floral overtones, light earth and hay, and a touch of spice, all atop a lightly bready malt character. The story continues much the same on the palate where pils malt provides some cracker-like and lightly papery impressions amidst a lifting effervescence, as the hops come forth with notes of spice, earth, temperate flora, and just enough drying bitterness to keep this brew clean and refreshing all the way to the crisp finish which beckons another sip. For pairing options, the choices are many; spicy pizzas and calzones, fried chicken, tempura, chicken salads, and Italian sandwiches spring to mind. Cheers!
Situated in the Shenandoah Valley, Brothers Craft Brewing began business in December of 2012, the realization of a dream of three brothers: Adam, Jason, and Tyler Shifflett. Originally named Three Brothers Brewing, the brewery rebranded in April of 2015 to avoid potential conflicts with other marks, and to better represent the sense of brotherhood and camaraderie among the entire staff of the company - why limit the brotherhood to three, after all? The roots of the business go back to when Adam, the eldest brother, started homebrewing while still in the Navy, where he had worked as a nuclear powered submarine engineer. After leaving the Navy and developing his skill as a brewer, he and his brothers joined up and started a production brewery to serve the Harrisonburg area and the surrounding Shenandoah Valley, which the brothers had always called home.
Now, in 2020, the brothers are still as focused as ever on producing the highest quality and freshest beer for their local community. But, their community focus doesn't end with the beer; the brewery supports numerous charitable initiatives including a gift drive each December for Mercy House, the Souper Bowl Food Drive in February, the United Way's Stuff the Bus campaign each summer, and, one Friday per month, Cask for a Cause, which features a beer brewed specifically to support a local nonprofit. Currently the brewery produces four year-round beers, five seasonals, and a growing list of literally dozens of limited and one-off brews including barrel-aged, wild, sour, and experimental beers.
