CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2012) - Big Rock Brewery Inc. (TSX:BR) is proud to announce the newest addition to our Brewmaster's Edition, SAAZ Republic Pilz. Brewmaster Paul Gautreau has created a Pilsner that pays homage to original European style Pilsners while continuing Big Rocks tenacious pursuit of local innovation. "I believe that in a craft segment dominated by ales, there is a place for a true European style Pilsner," says Paul. "SAAZ Republic Pilz is a light lager generously spiced with Czech hops which fills that niche."
SAAZ Republic Pilz has a distinct but mild bitterness on the front end followed by a slight hop middle and a clean, refreshing finish. Poured in a glass, SAAZ Republic Pilz is a thing of beauty, sporting a dense, white head atop a golden yellow body.
If you want to know exactly where you can pick up a six pack of SAAZ Republic Pilz, or try it on tap, you can start your search by putting on your beer goggles and heading to our website's beer finder feature at www.bigrockbeer.com/beer-finder. This delicious brew is available in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba until January 2013.
The Brewmaster's Edition is an on going program that will release small batches of innovative brews on a seasonal basis. These crafty brews all share one very special ingredient - play. Featuring our most imaginative flavours and profiles, they are a product of our passion for innovation, our constant curiosity and our insatiable sense of adventure.
