Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) recently announced that PC Pils will soon join the brewery’s Seasonal lineup.
Lagers are absolutely making a comeback these days, and Founders Brewing Co. is joining this welcomed trend by adding PC Pils as a new autumn to winter Seasonal. Aptly described as ” profoundly crushable, pleasantly crisp”, PC Pils lays a foundation with the finest Pilsner malts and then shakes things up a bit in the hop department. Although European Noble hops are usually employed in this style, the brewers at Founders decided to go with the American varieties of Chinook, Cascade and Centennial to develop aromatic and flavor notes that are piney, citrusy and floral. This offering comes together at a very reasonable 5.5% ABV and 45 IBUs to achieve maximum drinkability.
PC Pils will see an initial release in September in the Founders taproom and in a very limited amount of select markets. Full distribution will then be seen by the entire brewery distribution footprint from October through the end of the year. This offering will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles for the suggested retail price of $9.99 and in 15-packs of 12 oz. cans for the suggested retail price of $17.99. October will be here before you know it, so keep an eye out for PC Pils to satisfy all your easy drinking beer needs this fall. Prost!
