The latest year-round offering that will soon be hitting the marketplace from Full Sail Brewing is its Session Premium Northwest Pilsner. This new Session Pilsner is a hop forward take on the classic Czech beer style but done in a Pacific Northwest way. At only 4% ABV this is a beer that truly exemplifies this sessionable beer style.
Inspired by the traditional Czech brewing style, Session Pilsner is a extruding with a Central European malt flavor but with a slightly added Pacific Northwest twist that provides a stronger hop aroma. Full Sail deployed the use of Cascade and Crystal Hops for Session Pilsner, grown at Sodbuster Hop Farms just north of Salem, Oregon. There is an entire field of salmon-safe Cascade Hops that are grown especially for Full Sail at the farm. At only 34 IBUs, Session Pilsner is a bit subtler on the hops than an India Pale Lager.
Full Sail Session Premium Northwest Pilsner will be available in 6-packs, 12-pack and on draft. Look for it using the Full Sail Beer Locator.
