CALGARY, AB – Big Rock Brewery has announced the release of SAAZ Republic Pilz, the latest installment in its Brewmaster’s Edition series of limited edition beers.
Created by Big Rock Brewmaster Paul Gautreau, the new beer is described as follows:
SAAZ Republic Pilz is inspired by the creation of the first Pilsner beer created in Plzen, Bohemia in 1840. In an age when most beers marketed as Pilsners have little in common with the original, SAAZ Republic Pilz, with its distinct blend of authentic Czech Saaz hops and locally grown ingredients, is a traditional Pilsner that stays true to its European origins – and is crafted with pride, right here in Alberta.
SAAZ Republic Pilz will be officially unveiled tomorrow (September 6th) with a launch party at WURST (2437 4th Street SW, Calgary). It will be sold in six packs in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and will be available until January 2013.
