PILSNERS

26. Victory Prima Pils

-Victory Brewing Co., Downingtown, PA

"Prima!" The Victory folks explain, is "a German exclamation of joy." The Prima Pils is grassy with a dry finish. If you're every desire is a crisp beer that acts like a lightweight but drinks like a welter, than the hoppy golden Prima is for you.  

27. Scrimshaw

-North Coast Brewing Co., Fort Bragg, CA

"Named for the delicate engravings popularized by 19th century seafarers," according to the North Coast brewers. It's an inspired pilsner that maintains an even keel between complexity of flavor and light body. Mildly bitter with hints of floral hoppiness.  

28. Keller Pils

-Southampton Publick House, Southhampton, NY

Another lazy day sipper of impeccable quality. The brewers add a new hopp variety every year to change up the take on the classic German pilsner style.

29. Pilsner Urquell

-Plzensky Prazdroj, Plzen, Czech Republic

The original pilsner that dates back to the mid nineteenth century. It's a tried and true Czech pils that's maintained it's recipe and reputation for over a century. If solid tradition and consistency are enough, then its dangerous drinkability make it a clear choice for one of world's top beers. It's crystal clear and straw gold in appearance, with hints of sweet corn and biscuits to taste. 

30. Pivo Hoppy Pils

-Firestone Walker Brewing Co., Paso Robles, CA

By far the hoppiest of the pilsners on our list. The Firestone Walker Brewing Company offers this description: "Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zes and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils."
