Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) recently announced that Good Chit Pilsner is officially back, and hitting shelves and taps now as a special, limited release brew.
To get the 2017 release of Good Chit Pilsner just right, it all started with “a 100-acre barley harvest . . . grown in Rogue Farm’s volcanic-rich soil at Tygh Valley, Oregon.” Once collected, the barley was transported to the brewery’s on-site malt house so that it could be floor-malted, a process that sees “golden grain . . . spread across a specialized floor, where it is hand-turned every 12 hours over the course of eight days.” Once the barley sprouts, or “chits”, it is then delivered to Rogue’s brewery so that it can become Good Chit Pilsner and give fans the chance to truly “taste the terroir of Rogue Farms.”
“The floor-malting process is an ancient brewing practice that best represents our farm-grown pilsner,” said Rogue General Manager Dharma Tamm. “It creates a unique experience in every bottle of Good Chit.”
Good Chit Pilsner is available now and will be hanging around through the month of August. You can expect to find this Limited Release is 22 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of the nationwide distribution network or Rogue Ales. Prost!
