Hanabi LagerWinter 2020 Edition Bohemian Style Pilsner 500ml - 6-bottle case Special
Thanks to his winemaking efforts at Screaming Eagle, I've become friends with Nick Gislason, their winemaker since 2008 and tasted his pilot batches of Pilsner when he graciously donated and poured a mini-keg at our inaugural Inspire Napa Valley 2018. Now Nick, his wife and some winemaking colleagues are brewing seasonal lagers in their brewery workshop in south Napa. Inspired by old-world lager brewing techniques, and using heirloom barley varieties with great flavors, they are brewing lagers that are complex, yet still vibrant and refreshing. Of course, as winemakers themselves, they appeal to a wine-lovers palate, and marry some white Burgundy winemaking ideas with a deep study of barley. As an ancient cereal grain, barley is really fascinating to them, since it's one of the oldest crops ever grown by humankind and making beer from it even pre-dates winemaking by several thousand years! There's a lot of history there, and they're interested to bring brewing back to it's historical, more agricultural roots, like winemaking, from which it's not so different at a fundamental level. $98/6pk in 500ml bottles with custom shipper included for safe shipping.
