Latest Specialty Beer: Indie Pilsner (Benefits AIFF)
The newest specialty beer to hit our taps is Indie Pilsner. Pilsner is a lager-style beer, named after the Czech town of Pilsen, where this beer originated. Pilsners use bottom-fermenting yeast and are generally pale in color, as they use lighter malts.
We named this microbrew in honor of the Ashland Independent Film Festival (AIFF), which receives a portion of sales from 3/30-4/20. This is the latest round of our Pints for a Purpose program. We’re holding a kickoff party at Standing Stone Brewing Company on 3/30 from 5-9 pm and encourage you to join us. The more pints we sell that night, the more we donate per pint!
Back to the beer….here are the details:
Indie Pilsner has a bright yellow color. You’ll savor a spicy-herbal hop aroma from the use of Czech Saaz hops. Enjoy the light to medium body and a bready, biscuit-like malt profile. A finishing medium bitterness rounds out the tasting experience. 4.9% abv.
It’s made with 100% organic ingredients.
- Bittering = German Magnum
- Flavor/Aroma = Czech Saaz
It pairs well with lighter food like chicken, salmon, salads and mild cheddar cheeses. We recommend trying it with these offerings from our restaurant menu:
- Sea Scallop and Spinach Salad
- Creamy Garlic Chicken Pizza
- Lamb Pita
- Sauteed Veggie Wrap
- Penne Pasta
It’s also the perfect complement to the fabulous offerings at the Ashland Independent Film Festival. Check out AIFF’s lineup so you don’t miss out on the fun, and treat yourself to a pint of Indie Pilsner and some food before or after the films.
