discover our four clubs The Tabernash Pilsner is a well-balanced, true to style German Pilsner. It’s open fermented at cool temperatures and cellar-conditioned for six weeks. This process provides this golden pilsner with rich and balanced aromas and flavors. Look for the nose to offer Euro (Munich) malts and a slight hop spiciness. Along with the Munich malts, the brewers at Tabernash use 2-row pale and crystal malts which are balanced nicely with Saaz, Perle, and Vanguard hops. Note a nice dry malt flavor with a slight bitter finish. Overall, a very clean and well-balanced, hoppy pilsner. Try this pils with your favorite fish or chicken dish or with the recipe in this newsletter.
The Tabernash Brewing Company, located in the small rural town of Longmont, CO, first opened its doors back in November 1993. One of the original partners of the brewery was trained in the art and science of brewing at Germany’s oldest brewing school, the Weihenstephan Technical University. Because of this German training, Tabernash features a distinct line of Bavarian style beers. And back in 1993, these styles of lagers and Weiss beers were not that common in the craft brewing industry.

Throughout the years, the Tabernash Brewing Company has won too many gold medals at the Great American beer Festival and the World Beer Cup to list. They are truly a widely respected micro in the industry and we’re so excited to introduce them to you. In April of 1998, Tabernash merged with another award-winning, small independent brewery – the Left Hand Brewing Company and with the merger, there is now almost as much gold in Longmont as there is in Fort Knox!

The name Tabernash is derived from the name of an Ute Indian Tribe warrior from the 1870s. Tabernash, the warrior, resided in the mountains just outside of Denver. He did not take kindly to the Anglo settlers in this area and set out to loot and vandalize the properties around the area of Winter Park. He soon became a wanted man and was later shot and killed by cowboy "Big Frank" Addison in 1878.

The Tabernash lineup consists of three different Weiss beers, Dunkle Weiss, Kristall Weiss, and Weiss; a pilsner, and several seasonal brews including Oktoberfest and Maibock. This month we’re thrilled to bring you their Dunkle Weiss and the Tabernash Pilsner.
