This crossover between German and Bohemian styles is a novelty in Canada but a very old technique in Southwest Germany. This technique gives Brauerei Fahr a competitive advantage for this new beer.
Southwest German Pilsners combine German noble hops with the malty taste profile of a Bohemian Pilsner. Fahr Pils will be a Southwest German Pilsner, a variety that has not been seen in Western Canada. The beer itself is hops forward and German noble hops are exclusively used. This imparts a well-rounded bitterness together with a floral, slightly spicy flavor typical to standard German Pilsners. The bitterness from the hops is balanced with a maltiness that is highlighted by the yeast and mashing schedule. Further refinements of the recipe may or may not include decoction mashing (boiling of a partial amount of grains to release complex caramels and unfermentable sugars).
