A true northern German Style Pilsner.
Brewing great Pils is about paying attention to all of the small details and being meticulous in process.
To that extent Garage started with 100% reverse osmosis water to allow a water profile perfect for brewing this style. Adding in only the necessary minerals allows them to achieve the crisp and soft palate that a beer like this should have.
Then they use 100% Pilsner malt from Bamberg to give gentle bready notes. Hop selection sees a trifecta of absolutely stellar German hops. Two classic noble hops; Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang provide beautiful herbal, floral and slight lemon zest notes which are perfectly complimented by a more modern German variety; Saphir. A delightful hop that marries some classic noble like characteristics with zingy tangerine notes.
While not dry hopped, Garage packed the whirlpool full of these hops so this beer is not short on hop character. The beer is cast away to ferment where it meets their house bavarian lager yeast.
They ferment this as low as possible for a long slow fermentation that yields an extremely clean and crisp pils once the extended lagering process is complete. Towards the end of fermentation the beer gets spunded to achieve an elegant carbonation.
