CBC Terroir Pils
Each year at the Craft Brewers Conference (CBC), Victory proudly showcases a variety of beers brewed exclusively for the German Hop Growers’ Association to demonstrate the diversity of German hop varieties.
In 2014, the focus is on four new hop varieties released in 2012, Mandarina Bavaria, Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon and Polaris, in addition to a classic Hallertauer Pils with a “terroir-twist.”
Malt: Two-row German malts
Hops: Tettnang Hallertau or Spalter Hallertau
With Tettnang Hallertauer: A hint of black pepper and mild spice complement the earthy and subtle melon flavors developed in this delicious German Pilsner with a refreshing and very dry finish. With Spalter Hallertauer: Well-balanced with a satisfying bready grain flavor and just the right amount of bitterness, this very unique brew features the bright, citrus notes familiar to a traditional German Pilsner, but with floral and melon qualities and a hint of spice in the finish.
Special one-time release, March 2014
