Purple Pils

ABV: 5.1%

Style: Pilsner

Some of the most fascinating botanicals are florals, and many have been incorporated into beers for centuries. We’ve used quite a few ourselves, with exciting results—although they do require a deft hand. Our Purple Pils starts with a classic Bohemian Pilsner, then bends the aromatic character ever so slightly into territory you can’t reach with hops alone. Florentine iris (orris) root adds a deep, fruity violet note, merging with the brighter chamomile “Juicyfruit” aromas. Jasmine adds a very subtle spicy and exotic note. Add the classic, “spicy” Bohemian Saaz hops and the result is a unique, well-integrated combination.
