Paste Magazine reviewed 62 American and European pilsners and enjoyed the international/American recipe mash up and the complexity of Highland Pilsner.

“You could sort of call it a “nouveau German” pilsner, as it’s made with a blend of German hop varietals—but they’re mostly the new varieties such as Hallertauer Blanc that are bridging the gap between what we think of as American and “continental” hop profiles. Regardless, you’re left with a nose that is both floral and fruity, complemented by light, crisp malt. It’s a pleasantly hoppy German-style pilsner with a nice degree of complexity." Hollie Stephenson created a super low sulphur pils, making some non-pilsner-drinking staff change their minds about the style.

Available at the brewery and year-round in all distribution areas.
