Gordon Biersch Brewing Co, which has brewed craft lager-style beers exclusively since 1988, announced today the availability of Zwickel Pils, the latest in the company’s series of limited-release “Uberbier” bottlings.
Gordon Biersch Zwickel Pils is a bottom fermented pilsner brewed using the Hallertau and Tettnang hops plus Pilsner malt used to brew the company’s classic Czech-style pilsner. The tradition of Zwickel beers was the hidden secret of brewers who would tap directly from the tank to take home the freshest beer from the brewery in its most pristine, unfiltered condition. Since it’s bottled without going through the extensive filtration processes common to other beers, it enters the bottle fresh and continues to age in the bottle.
Said Gordon Biersch co-founder Dan Gordon, “We’ve enjoyed carrying the flag for classic, German-style craft beers since 1988. Zwickel Pils gives us another reason to raise a glass to the growing number of beer lovers who are discovering just how flavorful, complex and interesting lager styles can be.”
Like all Gordon Biersch products, Zwickelpils is brewed in adherence to the “Reinheitsgebot,” the German purity law of 1516 which stipulates the use of only four ingredients: water, malt, hops, and yeast.
Zwickel Pils is available beginning in April wherever Gordon Biersch products are sold. 750ml swingtop bottles retail for $5.99.
