This past week Von Ebert Brewing released Black Pils, its brewer’s interpretation on a German-style schwarzbier.
The brew team at Von Ebert created a pilsner that they felt would appeal to our region’s dark, wet winters. Black Pils sits in between a German-style pilsner and a Schwarzbier, that’s described as containing notes of fresh cut herbs, light caramel, and wafts of lighter roast coffee with a firm palate-sticking bitterness. The beer sits at 5.0% ABV and 33 IBUs.
Black Pils is currently available in 16oz cans at both Von Ebert Brewing locations – Glendoveer and the Pearl. Then beginning on Friday, January 10th, Black Pils will be on available on draft at both locations.
