Blue Point Brown Beaver Pilsner

Brewed by Blue Point Brewing (AB InBev)
Patchogue, New York USA
7% Imperial Pils/Strong Pale Lager | 9 Ratings | 48 IBU |
Blue Point Brewing Company is pleased to announce the release of a special one-off batch, brewed exclusively with members of local Long Island homebrew club Brewer’s East End Revival (B.E.E.R.). Jim Brown, Lloyd Kent, Bill Thorne, and Uncle Bobby Gormley had been brewing for years in Fort Salonga before they submitted their Brown Beaver Pilsner in the 2009 annual club Brew Cup. After judging the Brew Cup competition, Blue Point head brewer Alan Brady decided the crisp, hoppy, 7% ABV version of a classic pilsner, called Brown Beaver Pilsner, would fit right into Blue Point’s lineup of a dozen regularly brewed craft beers, which includes World Beer Cup Gold medalist Toasted Lager, RastafaRye Ale, Hoptical Illusion, and Blueberry Ale. Working closely with club winners Jim, Lloyd, and Bill (sadly Uncle Bobby passed away before the big day), Blue Point proudly brewed, bottled, and distributed the winning recipe. 1.070 OG
