You asked and we listened! I am very happy to report that Great Lakes Brewing Company will offer a NEW packaged seasonal in 2012. Many of you have already had the opportunity to enjoy this brew in our Brewpub and/or at our Cleveland Hopkins Airport location (are you getting excited?). Yes, The Wright Pils will be available in ALL GLBC distribution markets in 6-packs and draft in June and July!
The Wright Pils, a classic pilsner style with a flowery bouquet and elegantly dry finish, is named after the Wright brothers who invented and built the world’s first successful control airplane (WARNING: Please do not operate an airplane while enjoying this brew!). The Wright Pils is light and crisp, but not too light for true craft drinkers (5.3% ABV and it’s a pilsner people). Serve as an aperitif or pair the brew with salads, salmon, tuna and marbled meats.
Personally, I’m really not a pilsner drinker because I like the bold and hoppy stuff (I AM a beer snob). I was actually pretty blown away by how delicious this beer really is. Even a beer snob can’t always handle a porter in the summer heat, so The Wright Pils is the perfect alternative. This beer is also a great beer to lure in non-craft drinkers (if you hang out with those types of people…which we hope you do so you can spread the GLBC gospel!).
If you can’t wait until June and happen to be in the Cleve, stop by the onsite GLBC Brewpub and Gift Shop to purchase a pint or 6-pack or savor the flavor while waiting for your next flight out of CLE Airport (find our location in Concourse C). These locations will continue to offer The Wright Pils year-round!
