This year’s “First Brewed” is a muscular and hoppy pilsner-like lager (we’ll call it an imperial pils)! The grist bill combines floor-malted English Maris Otter and German pilsner malt in almost equal portions, and contains an unique dollop of 10% rye malt. 80 IBUs of hops in the kettle (Magnum, Galena, Motueka, Wakatu, Saaz, Spalter, Tettnanger) followed by two rounds of dry-hopping in the conditioning tank (Motueka, Wakatu, Saaz, Spalter, Tettnanger) leaves no doubt about our passionate commitment to hop character in beer.
