Free State Paper Moon Pils


Brewed by Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Czech Pilsner (Světlę) | Ratings: 7 | Alcohol: -
This Bohemian Pilsner takes its name from the beautifully filmed 1972 Black and White classic, Paper Moon. The film starred the precocious Tatum O’Neal and her father Ryan. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance at the young age of 10 years old. Scenes of the film were filmed at the Historic Midland Hotel and Wilson State Bank Building in Wilson, Kansas. Otherwise known as the Czech Capital of Kansas, Wilson saw large numbers of immigrants from Czechoslovakia in the 1870’s who came to work on the railroad. It’s conceivable that those workers would have consumed a brew similar to that of this Bohemian Pilsner, a style that originated in Pilsen, Czechoslovakia and gave birth to the world’s most popular beer style. This lager was brewed with ample quantities of Czech Saaz and Slovenian Celeia hops to counterbalance the golden pilsner malt. Dry-hopped with these same hops, Paper Moon Pils is a clean, medium bodied and dry lager with a nice hoppy finish.
