Russian River STS Pils

STS Pils is a classic German-style pilsner but with a Russian River twist, this is because we dry hop this beer with a small amount of European hops. It is straw in color and will often have a slight haze due to the fact that there is a small amount of yeast left in the beer. This beer is hop-forward with a firm malt foundation, strong lager yeast characteristic, and a dry, bitter finish. It is often said that Pilsner is a study in purity, simplicity, and cleanliness of flavor. It should also be noted that water can make the difference between a good beer and a great beer when adjusted properly. We use a distinct water profile for STS Pils, which contributes to the crisp minerality in the finish.

A truly great Pilsner is a difficult beer to perfect, as its light crisp flavor profile leaves little room for error. Modern brewing techniques (such as open-top fermentation) and old-world traditions create the distinct qualities in STS Pils.
