Gordon Biersch has announced the addition of a 750ml program. A series of brews, limited to 4,000 cases or less.
Imperial Pilsner Brau (IPB) Is First Up.
“This is a beer unlike any other made before,” says Gordon. “We designed the IPB to pique the curiosity of the IPA drinker, and we hope to capture their palate preference with the unique, authentic flavor that is completely its own. This concept is all about innovation and beer creativity.”
Swing Top Bottles Imported From Germany
The brewing process takes place at the San Jose brewery and is topped off by hand with the addition of historic German swing-top enclosure, which dates back to the late 1800s.
