Küsterer Bohemian Pils

A Bohemian cellar-style (unfiltered) pils with a soft, herbal nose, clean body and a crisp finish, this is the style of beer that eventually evolved into American lager towards the end of the 19th Century. Historically, this was one of the world’s first “international collaboration” beers, combining pale malting technology from England, lager yeast from Bavaria and hops from Bohemia – and instantly became a world sensation under Bavarian Brewmaster Josef Groll, working in Plzen, a city in the modern Czech Republic. Our version is based on the brewery in České Budějovice, by the national brewery, Budějovický Budvar, which is also known as the “Czech Budweiser” using the German spelling.

It’s approachable, nuanced and refreshing…reminding us what an everyman beer can be.

Christoph Küsterer

Christoph Küsterer was the original German brewer in the Grand River Valley and Kent County. Arriving around 1844, his family’s brewing history lasted nearly a century. We’re proud to pay tribute to his legacy as the region’s first craft brewery focused on German styles. Our Küsterer Biers are brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot (German Beer Purity Law) and contain only water, malt, hops and yeast.
