You’ve heard the phrase “Beers with Beshear,” and now it’s coming to KentuckySportsRadio.com Thursday through Sunday. Like many Kentuckians across the state at 5:00 pm, we are going to start having a “Beer with Beshear” on the website.
With taprooms, bars and restaurants closed across the state, the craft beer industry in Kentucky is suffering. Each day we will highlight a different Kentucky craft beer to show our support of all the amazing breweries across our Commonwealth.
BIRCUS Brewing: Pie Fighter Pilz
BIRCUS started canning three of their beers in mid-March. It was great timing for the Ludlow brewery with the pandemic and quarantine having just started. One of the beers BIRCUS chose to can was their Polish Style Pilsner, Pie Fighter Pilz.
Pie Fighter Pilz isn’t your normal Pilsner. It’s Polish. So, what does that mean? Great question. This beer is a North German-style pilsner and is made with 100% German barley and hops. Northern Germany borders Poland and boom, there you have it, a Polish Style Pilsner.
It’s very different from your American Pilsners because of the hops used, but I was a huge fan. I love Pilsners and this beer is one I continue to go back to.
Description: A North German-style Pilsner, golden in color with a 100% German barley grain bill and mild notes of Mandarina Bavaria & Hallertau hops. This lager has a crisp clean finish.
