The lowly pilsner is making a comeback (albeit a modest one) thanks to craft brewers who realize every beer on the shelves doesn’t have to knock you down with its intensity. With that in mind, Bucks County’s Neshaminy Creek offers up what is very quietly one of the finest pilsners being brew on the East Coast with Trauger Pilsner. With a light body that suggests bread and crackers, and pleasantly herbal hops that also give off distinctive lemon aromas, this is a brew that begs to be enjoyed with an afternoon meal and conversation at a cozy tavern. When so many craft beers strive for BIG, it’s nice to get something simple but tasty every now and then. Kick back with one at Local 44, Perch Pub, 12 Steps Down and other locations.
We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
