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 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.
A delicate complex lager with a subtle caramel aroma and a dry finish aided by noble hop bitterness. A brew that says cheers to Fall and cheers to six years of serving Righteously Good Beer to the town of Itasca and the Chicagoland area. Thanks to all of our patrons!
Church Street is proud to present our take on the American IPA with this dry-hopped West Coast IPA that’s brimming with Cascade aroma, giving this tangerine-beauty a fruity and refreshing nose - don’t be surprised if you find yourself sniffing more than sipping!
