Limited-time pilsner rolls out in six-packs, Tackle Boxes and on draft taps this week
ATLANTA (March 2013) — Just in time for some warmer weather, SweetWater Brewing Company is bringing back their fiery pilsner style ale — Road Trip. This full-flavored beverage is a part of the brewery’s Catch and Releaseseasonal lineup, featured for a limited-time every March through May.
Made from Pilsner and Vienna malts and brewed with Cascade, Sterling and US Golding hops, Road Trip finishes with hints of citrus and herbal hoppy notes ringing in at 5.2% alcohol by volume. Unique for most pilsners, Road Trip is actually fermented at warmer ale temperatures giving it fuller flavor, capped with an intense, spicy hop finish.
“To me the Road Trip is a perfect springtime beer, great for outdoor activities like sitting by the pool or even mowing the lawn,” says SweetWater’s head brewer Nick Nock. “This is our version of a pilsner so it has a light, crisp body with a great hop character, which gives it a zing of spiciness.
Six-packs of Road Trip will begin stocking up in coolers across the Southeast, while kegs roll out on draft at participating retailers and accounts the week of March 11. Folks will also find Road Trip making a debut in SweetWater’s Tackle Box Variety 12-pack later in the month of March.
Get it while the gettin’s good, because on this Road Trip, nobody rides for free!
