NORTH GERMAN PILSNER

Bitburger Premium Pils

German 'Pilsner,' modeled after a style first brewed in the Czech town of Plzen, has inspired the world's pale golden lagers — the globe's most popular beers by a mile. But the German originals, like this classic 'Pils' brewed in the city of Bitburg, have a more bracingly bitter finish, ideal for cooling off on sun-drenched days and taming the heat of spicy foods. More substantial than commercial lagers, too, Bitburger packs as much nutrition as a bowl of granola. This classic pilsner's herbal hop aromas and brisk lager finish feel as fresh and clean as a newly starched shirt and can banish even the most persistent cases of the hot and muggies. Buffalo wings and burritos make for terrific pairings.

Price: $1.50 (12 oz.)
