Brewed with a combination of two row Breiss and Carapils malts, Millstream’s German Pilsner is very light in color and starts with a pleasant spicy hop nose. Hopped with Tettnang and Czechoslovakian Saaz hops, you’ll note an assertive bitterness that is rounded out with a pale maltiness. It finishes clean with a lingering hop bitterness. Overall, a classic interpretation of the style offering a big spicy hop character derived from dry hopping with Czech Saaz Hops. We really liked this pilsner! Try it with Indian, Thai or any other spicy foods.
Some years ago, three Amana, Iowa men decided to revive the art that hadn't been practiced in Amana for years - the art of brewing beer. Carroll F. Zuber and brothers James and Dennis Roemig dreamt of building a small brewery to produce small batches of hand-brewed beer reminiscent of Europe's finest brews.

To brew the best they needed the best, so they called on one of America's premier brewers, Joseph Pickett Sr., who helped in the brewery design, in the development of the beers, Millstream Lager and the robust, Schild Brau. Later, Millstream Brewers developed the zesty Millstream Wheat Beer.

In 1985 Millstream Brewing Co. opened its doors - the first brewery to operate in Amana since 1884. So the Millstream Brewery was born and so it has come to be recognized as the home of quality brews of rewarding taste.

In January of this year, Chris Priebe, Aaron Taubman, and Teresa Sly-Albert bought the brewery after working for the previous owners. Chris serves as head brewer, with Aaron overseeing quality control and Teresa heading up sales and marketing. Chris began brewing after working in hospitality room at Dubuque Brewing and catching the "brew bug". He went on to receive his brewing diploma from the famed Siebel Institute and then went back to brew for Dubuque.

Chris, Aaron and Teresa are committed to continuing the Millstream tradition of brewing great European beer styles right here in America.
