Upright Engelberg Pilsener


Brewed by Upright Brewing
Portland, Oregon USA
Style: Pilsener | Ratings: 42 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.5%
We just released a draft-only batch called Engelberg Pilsener, named after Mt.Angel. Itís German-style: light, dry and full of hoppy flavor. We made a simple single malt (Canadian pilsener malt) and single hop (Mt. Angel-grown tettnanger) recipe using a Munich lager yeast. The finished beer came out remarkably dry so for the second batch set to be released around the third week of July we coaxed just a bit more mouthfeel and residual sugar out of it and used a different hop variety, hallertauer mittlefruh. The beer is currently on tap in the tasting room and at a handful of bars around town. When the second batch is ready both will be on hand to taste side-by-side. Editorís note: used to be all-tettnanger, now is tettnanger and hallertauer.
