Beers with Beshear: Pie Fighter Pilz

You’ve heard the phrase “Beers with Beshear,” and now it’s coming to 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.

Style: Pilsner

ABV: 4.8%

IBU: 27

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.

    The Commonwealth of Kentucky is listed on D&B which, correct me if I’m wrong, means it’s a corporation. Corporations do not serve the people. Look up what corporations do.

    Always amazed by how many rappers you see flashing wads of cash and weapons while wearing a t-shirt that says Thug Life and Thug Life Forever, etc., and then are offended as are the politicians by being called what they’ve worked so hard to achieve. Unbelievable!

    Thug life is part of the social engineering used to program the youth as is all mainstream music, movies and television programming. There’s a reason they call it television programming….words have meaning.
