Descriptions

HEAVENLY HELLES

One of Church Street's more popular craft beer, Heavenly Helles, is one of Germany's quintessential beverages. Utilizing old world decoction-mashing techniques for a truly unique sweet malt character. This gentle drink also features a straw colored-clarity that's clearly heavenly!

CHURCH STREET PILS

This award winning pilsner recipe comes to you from the brewers at Church Street Brewing Company. Our proprietary yeast strain along with the Czech Saaz hops produces a pilsner that is completely unique to this side of the pond. The rich malt character of a Czech Pilsner is derived from our European brewing techniques (decoction mash brewing) which comes through at first, followed by the crisp hop bitterness of a German Pilsner.

DEVIL’S ADVOCATE

Devil's Advocate begs the question: What happens when you take a ton (literally) of Pilsen malt, put it through a decoction mash, boil it up, add another 500 lbs of Belgian candy and kane sugar, and then add some of Duvel's world famous yeast? The answer: A spicy, sweet, and dangerously drinkable Belgian golden strong ale.
