Brewed by Dogfish Head Brewery
Czechsum Function is a pseudo Czech Pilsner, brewed with all pilsner malt and Czech Saaz hops. But instead of using traditional lager yeast to ferment the beer, our house ale yeast was used. Ironically Doggy yeast spits out similar flavors to some lager yeast so its perfect for the style. In the small town of Pilzen, the Czechs were the first to brew this style of beer during the mid 19th century before it took over world dominance of peoples taste buds. Despite what most typically know as pilsner these days, the original brew had a wonderful malt body with a soft but crisp herbal bitterness from the use of the towns local hops, Saaz. This beer follows that frame work with a nice clean malt body with a touch of honey sweetness and a nuanced spicey floral hop character in both the nose and flavor. This one is definitely for quaffing on a sunny spring day! This beer is great with the Dog Pile or our Fish Tacos.
