GOLD AWARD WINNER 2017 WORLD BEER AWARDS - Pax Pils is the refreshing sign of Brewery Cornelissen. This traditionally crafted, bright golden yellow barley beer was already in 1993 by beer connoisseur Michael Jackson described as "a real tasty Lager that still exudes the old traditions of taste and brewprocedure". In his new book he devoted almost a whole page, later that year, to the beer he had enjoyed. And seven years later, in september 2000, he repeated on his legendary website “The Beerhunter” : "I have long enjoyed Pax Pilsner, and again appreciated it’s almost stony, austere, dryness”, this after a new visit to our region. Pax Pilsner is a fixed value in the Belgian beer landscape. In 1979 it became a first time awarded Golden Quality Medal, a second time in 1997. As with the repeated recognition by beer connoisseur Michael Jackson designates the time interval between these two awards unmistakable on the continuity in taste and quality of Pax Pils. The passing of craftsmanship and tradition from father to son and of master brewer on master brewer-is one of the important values of Brewery Cornelissen. In 1918 the 3rd generation brewer, Jaak Cornelissen, brought this pilsner to the market in remembrance of World War 1 and named it PAX after the ‘Goddess of Peace’. A delicious malty Lager brewed according to the old Belgian ‘pils’ brewingtradition. available in: - 24 x 25cl/33cl bottles - 24 x 33cl/50cl cans - 20l, 30l kegs (one way or RVS) - 50l kegs (RVS)
