We are switching things up a bit with “Beers with Beshear”. Since Governor Andy Beshear’s press conferences are becoming few and far between, we are changing the post to “Beers with Bernhard”. That’s me!
With taprooms, bars and restaurants slowly beginning to reopen across the state, the craft beer industry in Kentucky is starting to return to normalcy. Every weekend, I will continue to highlight a different Kentucky craft beer to show support of all the amazing breweries across our Commonwealth. And now that most are open, you can visit the taproom and try it yourself!
Monnik Beer Company: Italian Disco
It is rare to see an Italian Pilsner on a tap menu. So when I saw that Monnik brewed an Italian Pilsner, I had to try myself.
So what is an Italian Pilsner? Let Kate Bernot of CraftBeer.com tell you:
So, what makes an Italian pilsner an Italian pilsner if it’s brewed in America?
The simple answer is that Italian pilsners are German-style pilsners that have been dry-hopped with European hops for maximum aroma.
Unlike some other lager styles, Italian-style pilsners are less about malt and all about the hops.
Monnik absolutely killed it with Italian Disco. If you live in the Louisville area, I would hurry over to Monnik to try it yourself before it’s gone. You won’t be disappointed. Oh, and the food there is fantastic. Highly recommend the Eggplant Flatbread.
