The new Project Pilsner Series from Gigantic Brewing will make its debut on Saturday, February 1st with the release of Project Pilsner Citra. This new 5.2% ABV pilsner will be available on draft and in 500mL bottles.
Yes pilsners are in vogue and Gigantic Brewing is excited to introduce its new ongoing series of pilsners. First up is Project Pilsner Citra, a classic pilsner that is single hopped with Citra. The result is a bright, citrusy lager with notes of mandarin and mango.
We love drinking pilsner, so we thought it was about time to start making our own series of pilsner beers that reflect our love of citrusy hops. Our new ‘Project Pilsner’ series is a line of single hop American Pilsners featuring: Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic, Lotus, Crystal. We will brew these delicious hop forward pilsners year-round, except for a brief visit to the celebration of Oktoberfest. – Gigantic Brewing
