CALGARY, AB – After a popular run as part of the limited Brewmaster’s Edition series last fall, Big Rock Brewery has announced the return of SAAZ Republic Pilz as a year-round offering.
Now part of the Ed McNally Signature Series, a line-up of premium beers named for the brewery founder, SAAZ 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 is available now in six-pack bottles and on draught, and will be released in single 473 ml cans later this month.
