About the Ale:Did you know?
Czech saaz hops are exalted throughout the world for the unique crisp taste they impart ot world class lagers.
They come from the western region of the Czech Republic, Bohemia. They are the most expensive hops in the world.
Though Barley's Pilsner looks and drinks like a pilsener, we brew it using ale yeast. Technically, it would be classified as a Light Hybrid. Step aside, Prius.
