Pilsners are for the Spring and Summertime. Sorry, we didn't make the rules! As such, it's best to have a go-to pilsner in your fridge or in your cooler as the middle of the year rolls along. You don't want to be caught with the wrong brew when you're on the golf course, at the beach, or at the barbecue in your Some Good Hops attire, do you? Are you looking for just the right hoppy, refreshing beer for the occasion? Best to give these five spectacular Miami-brewed pilsners a try!
Pass Time Pilsner- Biscayne Bay Brewing
This gem from Biscayne Bay Brewing is perfect for some nice, crisp flavor when you're taking in a ballgame. With an ABV of 4.5%, you should be able to knock back a few of these before the 7th inning stretch. It's described as an "authentic taste of history," meaning it has all the refreshing hoppiness a good pilsner should have. Enjoy!
Tropicrystal- Cerveceria La Tropical
Speaking of taste of history, the Tropicrystal from La Tropical was originally brewed in Havana, Cuba, stretching all the way back to 1928. It's now brewed in Miami, where one and all can enjoy the light, refreshing notes of this Cuban-American brew.
Bike Bling- Beat Culture
Beat Culture mixed a classic approach with some modern ingredients. Bike Bling is a traditional Czech lager, complete with the bitter, crispy notes you expect out of a pilsner. However, it is dry-hopped with a New Zealand hop known as "Nelson Sauvin." This process brings out delicious fruity aromas in Bike Bling; this is no ordinary pilsner.
Koopa Troopa- Tripping Animals Brewing
Tripping Animals always brings their A-game, and their Koopa Troopa pilsner is no exception. This hoppy pilsner is made with citra hops, which brings out the fruity, refreshing aromas people love out of their Spring and Summertime drinks. This one's great for anything outdoors!
La Playita- The Tank Brewing Co.
Germany knows a thing or two about good pilsners, and America knows a thing or two about craft beer innovation. Mix those two together, and you get an absolute knockout of a beer like La Playita from Tank Brewing. If there's a sunny day at the beach in your future, best to stock up on this herbal, malty, refreshing brew.
