Killer Keller

Bottoms-up to the summer brew from our friends + award winning brewmaster at Southampton Publick House Brewery.

Visit an Old World Lager brewery and the brewmaster will insist that you enjoy a "keller" beer direct from the aging tank. To a brewer this is beer at it's purest, unfiltered, nuanced and gently carbonated." Each year they make it with a different hop variety to create a unique interpretation of the pilsner style. 

Flavor Description: Fresh hop aroma and a bracing bitterness are balanced by a clean malt profile. A dusting of yeast and traditional lagering create a crisp, smooth flavor profile.

Food Pairings: Ideal served with seafood, meats and spicy foods.
