The historic Berghoff Brewery dates back to 1887, when German immigrant Herman Berghoff and his three brothers crafted their first batch of beer in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The brewery survived Prohibition by making a root beer-like soda and, after the Volstead Act was repealed in 1933, was the first brewery in Indiana to produce legal beer. This traditional Pilsner merges the Old World with the new, using both American and German malts along with four varieties of German hops. Although the name suggests a bold hop presence, there is a crisp yet delicate balance to the straw-hued lager's slightly sweet character. This quencher goes down quite easy and should prove to be a great companion on a hot afternoon.
