Pilsener Beer or pils is a type of beer we can find almost everywhere in the world, but it comes from a Czech town that gives not only the name, but a great tradition and makes it for many the world?s best Pilsener Beer.

History of Pilsener Beer

The city of Pilsen (Plzen) is situated in the southwest of the Czech Republic and it is famous because of the large beer industry, which enjoys a well-earned fame. But it all starts at the end of the decade of the 30’s in the nineteenth century.

The beers of Bohemia (west of Pilsen city, also famous for its beer) were dense, thick and high fermentation did not satisfy the needs and tastes of the residents of Pilsen. That’s why they choose to create their own beer.

That?s how Pilsener Beer was born under the name of “bourgeois brewery,” which joined the rules of the Bavarian beer. Pilsen starts with a need, but soon began to have its own identity and style defined in terms of formulation and the entire design process, to obtain a final product of unquestionable quality. Today nearly two centuries after Pilsener Beer was born beer is made in the main breweries in the world.

The city of Pilsen has approximately 165.000 inhabitants

 

The Czech Republic’s Pilsener beer

Pilsener Beer is a lager beer, but has a number of characteristics that differences it from this kind of beers. Pilsener Beer is characterized by Moravian malt and the use of Zatec hops which produces a considerable increase in the alcoholic content. Another detail that should be emphasized is that this kind of beer is made with low fermentation yeast, a fact which clearly influences in its flavor.

Pilsen is usually between 3 to 5 alcohol degrees.

Czech Pilsener Beer beers are considered one of the best worldwide, with brands like Gambrinus, Pilsner Urquell, Staropramen among others. In Germany we also find a lot of beers of this class, which are differentiated by being a little stronger and bitter than Czech’s

Pilsen usually has a golden pale gold color

Beer glasses

Deciding which glass is ideal to drinking a beer is like going thought the discussion of what beer is best, that is why in this area almost unending and mined we will not enter. But we will go on a tour through all this glasses where we can drink a refreshing beer.
To begin with, we must say that there are 3 types of containers where to drink a beer. We have the glasses, the most popular undoubtedly, the cups with a touch of finesse, and mugs, perhaps the most comfortable.

“Determining an ideal glass for beer is impossible, since some glasses are for some beers and some aren’t. You could say that every glass of beer is for a special beer”.

  • Glass for beers of spontaneous fermentation (lambic and Gueuze). Not too high, it should be small, not exceed 12 cm or use flute glasses for gueuze.
  • Beer Stein for lagers, this is like a small barrel and a handle to keep the beer cold away from the heat of the hand. They are very popular like in Munich or Vienna.
  • Pint Glass Mug for lagers, this is high, strong and straight. In some places they are called chopp. They are tough and strong and have a handle – great toasting glasses and for crashing with friends. They often exceed 500 ml.
  • Pint glass for pale ale, stout, or porter beer. It is a lengthened glass, narrow bottom – and wide mouth, the design encourages the formation of foam.
  • German Weissbier beer glass, tall and fine lass, spherical mouth and narrow base, this allows the beer to warm up quickly.
  • Chalices and goblets are large, stemmed, bowl-shaped glasses, quite used in other beverages, allows good carbonation, plus the superb appreciation of the color and body of beer. 
  • Flute glass is the preferred serving vessel for Belgian lambics and fruit beers. The narrow shape helps maintain carbonation, while providing a strong aromatic front, also used for Cava or Champagne. Flute glasses display the lively carbonation, sparkling color, and soft lacing of this distinct style.
  • The Hoegaarden glass or also known as Tumbler glass is perfect for witbiers beers. The Bottom is small and large wide mouthed narrow and thick too.
  • Stange, long and straight, mostly used for lagers.
