A Pilsner for the people

Stone Brewing releases a new year-round Pilsner brewed with American public varietal hops

Stone Brewing announces the release of its year-round Pilsner now available throughout Southern California. A 4.7% (alcohol-by-volume) crisp and crushable beer, this is a Pilsner for the people.  

Stone Pilsner is easy-drinking and clean with notes of orange, pear and watermelon. It’s light-bodied with a mild breadiness and sweet corn-chip finish.  

First brewed at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station, Liberty Station Brewing Manager Kris Ketcham wanted a year-round draft offering for the Bistro to satisfy the request of fans for something laidback and light. As it turns out, the demand reached beyond the Bistro, so the team filled the big tanks, too. This low-ABV offering rounds out Stone’s year-round portfolio with a true Americana beer for sunny SoCal days.  

Originally brought to the U.S. by German immigrants, Pilsners here have evolved through the creativity of American brewers and ingredient-growers. Stone’s American Pilsner is made with North American-grown ingredients and public varietal hops.

“This beer is clean and crushable, with a light touch of Cashmere and Vista hops for good measure,” says Ketcham. “Both come out of the public-breeding program and we thought it fitting for our American Pilsner to be made with all-American public hops.” 

Closing out its third decade of brewing, Stone has made bold IPAs for hop-lovers, decadent stouts for dessert-lovers, even big haughty beers for arrogant people. Today, Stone says “cheers” to all kinds with a crowd-pleasing Pilsner for the people.
