IMPERIAL PILS

IMPERIAL PILS, THE EXPRESSIONIST

A sumptuous celebration of the Tettnanger hops, which we personally select every year during its harvest since 2008.
German noble hops are used by the handful during every stage of the production of this beer, so that at every moment it might absorb a different nuance of the aroma, a specific degree of bitterness, a special tile which might compose, together with others, the fragrant mosaic that are German country roads during the days of harvest.
Imperial Pils is our rendition of that time and those places, we portrait them with quick, decisive brushstrokes.

    The Pilsner glass is a conical glass, which widens upwards, with a short and robust stem or, in some cases, no stem at all. Its capacity usually does not exceed 30cl, or more rarely 40cl, to preserve the organoleptic profile of the beers as much as possible.This is also the reason behind its shape, as it favors the formation of a nice foam cap which, as is well known, protects the beer from oxidative phenomena.

“When during the early days of September hops are ripe, those who are visiting Tettnang will find themselves on the eye of an olfactory storm. Hop carriages come and go, and exude an inebriating ooze. We wanted to capture that perfume, that atmospheres, those landscapes.”

More about this beer

Imperial Pils is a golden lager brewed using only freshly harvested hops, from the plant to the kettle in less than 24 hours: hence, it is only brewed once a year, in September.

Full-bodied, herbal, intense this beer boasts evident honeyish flavors which intertwine with aromas reminiscing of flowery meadows, freshly mown grass and sweet sorrel. In the mouth, the fleeting malty sweetness is enriched by a slight viscosity, which culminates in a vigorous and punctual bitterness.

A seasonal beer packaged in kegs only, it is to be stored below 10°C and served at about 8-10°C.

Pairings

Ideal setting: Your local bar.

Food pairings: Great with fresh cow cheeses or raw milk pecorinos. Try it with lean Bavarian dishes (such as Weisswürsts) or egg-based dishes with leafy greens, such as a bitter herbs frittata or “erbazzone”.
