What Is a Pilsner?
The people of the Bohemian city of Pilsen had been brewing beer for centuries, but it wasn't until 1842 when a man named Josef Groll changed the face of the beer world forever. Originally from Bavaria, Groll became a brewer at the citizens' brewery in Pilsen, where he introduced the world to a golden beer made with lighter kilned malts and Saaz hops. This is what would become known as the Pilsner. Pilsen soon became the epicenter of this popular new style, and it spread quickly across Europe. While lesser copies of the original popped up around the world, it's the true Bohemian-style Pilsner that truly stands out. Its undeniable flavor proves why this beer is so beloved.
How Does BJ's Enchantress Golden Pilsner™ Match Up to the Original?
Pilsners are notorious for being tricky to brew correctly, but BJ's Head Brewer Aaron Steuck was able to harness the resources of our R&D Brewery in Boulder, Colorado, to develop a Pilsner recipe that captured the alluring spirit and intense flavors that are reminiscent of the original. We use the same type of hops that Josef Groll used, and we import our malts and hops from Germany and the Czech Republic. Our yeast requires a slow, cold fermentation that lasts at least two weeks before it's lagered for several more weeks. This ensures that BJ's Enchantress Golden Pilsner™ comes out clean, smooth and refreshing.
