Paulaner Pils Returns to the U.S.

Paulaner USA (White Plains, New York), the U.S. importer of the legendary Paulaner Brauerei (Munich, Germany) portfolio, has officially announced that Paulaner Pils will return to the United States in November 2020.

A recipe that has been refined by Paulaner since the mid-1800s, Paulaner Pils is a German-style Pilsner that “features a brilliant bright yellow color, floral hop aromas and a pleasant dry finish.” Coming in at a sessionable 4.9% ABV, Paulaner Pils is “a beer of formidable cleanliness and sophistication that delivers a clean, crisp taste.”

“We are excited to bring back our Paulaner Pils to the U.S. market,” says Steve Hauser, CEO of Paulaner USA. “Over the past few years there has been an increase in demand for sessionable products as an alternative to the fuller, IPA beers. Paulaner, being a German leader in easy-to-drink beers for centuries, has responded to this consumer trend with the reintroduction of our delicious Paulaner Pils to the U.S. market. 

“At Paulaner, we enjoy catering to our consumers who know beer and appreciate our brand’s history. Since 1634, Paulaner has been dedicated to the art of brewing and we strictly follow the Reinheitsgebot, Germany’s beer purity law. To this day, we continue to stay true to our mastered brewing techniques and only use select, high-quality ingredients for the utmost taste and quality. Given this, we are delighted to bring back our beloved classic German Pilsner to our U.S. customers.”

Paulaner Pils is scheduled to hit the U.S. in November 2020 with availability in 4-packs of 16.9 oz. cans. You can expect to find this Year-Round offering at fine beer retailers located in Alabama, Florida, New York and throughout the rest of Paulaner USA’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
