Penn Pilsner(1986) brewed by Penn Brewery - Pittsburgh, PA


Penn Pilsner(1986) brewed by Penn Brewery - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Penn Pilsner is an amber Vienna-style lager beer that is smooth, mellow and full bodied, with delicate hop aroma. Uses two-row barley malt and caramel-roasted malt. Based on founder Tom Pastorius' favorite German bier.
  

    
Today’s Penn Brewery beer brand was born in 1986, when the flagship Penn Pilsner variety was contract manufactured at Pittsburgh Brewing. Penn opened its own brewing operation at the E&O site beginning in 1989, in the historic buildings that had been restored with the assistance of the North Side Civic Development Corporation. The restaurant also opened in 1989 as Allegheny Brewery & Pub and was renamed Penn Brewery in 1994. Notably, Penn was the first “tied house,” i.e., restaurant tied to a brewery, in Pennsylvania since Prohibition.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Although this is titled a pilsner it is fact a Vienna Lager. It's a traditional German recipe that's dead on for the style according to the homebrewing bible- Brewing the Classic Styles. extremely smooth and slightly sweet with a dry finish. Low carbonation makes them easy to drink and adds smoothness. I love this beer.

The original owner recently came out of retirement and bought the brewery back. He was upset that his labor of passion was run into the ground and eventually closed and contracted the brewing out of the area. Well Penn Brewery is back and is now brewing on site again and it shows. This is the Penn Brew we loved not that other stuff that just had their name on it. This is what Pennsylvania German craft beer is all about my friends. Thanks to Tom Pastorius for bringing traditional German craft beer back to Pittsburgh. Try it. It's a great lager. Cheers!
