Baysville, Ontario – Lake of Bays Brewing and the CFL Alumni Association proudly present their first collaboration, Pigskin Pilsner. Developed in consultation with more than 200 Canadian football and craft beer enthusiasts who sent them their preferences and suggestions, this refreshing, true-to-style pilsner is made with the finest two-row Canadian and German pilsner malt and Hallertauer hops and presented in a 1.89L growler. The ultimate for sharing, collecting and game-time celebrating (but definitely not for throwing touchdowns. That would be a bad idea.) Soon to be available at the LCBO and on tap at select establishments.
These growlers from Lake of Bays are purged with CO2 when they were filled, so they have the same shelf life of any packaged beer (most growlers only stay fresh for a week or so).
Pours crystal clear with a brilliant golden hue and dense white foam. Aromatics are of fresh-cut hay with slight floral notes and the unmistakable graininess that is the hallmark of a traditional German-style pilsner. The mouth feel is light-bodied with a subtle hint of citrus and the pleasant tanginess of Hallertauer hops. Finishes clean and refreshing. 5% alc./vol. | 24 IBUs.
