Lagunitas Czech Pils
Petaluma, California

About half an hour to the north of San Francisco, Lagunitas Brewing Company produces mostly hoppy, West Coast ales that do not compromise flavor and bitter bite. However, their spin off on a Bohemian Pilsner is rather spot on. A pure golden color with a creamy off-white head exudes aromas of grains, bread and floral bouquets. The first sip is slightly spicy and crisp with a sweet malty finish reminiscent of a warm loaf of bread. The bottom-fermented yeast that survives at low temperatures leaves this beer at 6.2% ABV. This higher alcohol is a deviation from Czech beer traditions and is common among American craft brewers who usually create much stronger takes on the Pilsner style.

Moonlight Reality Czeck-Style Pils
Fulton, California

Reality Czeck is the Moonlight Brewing Company's ode to western Czech-style lagers. At 4.9% ABV, this is a typical pilsner with its very golden color and slight floral snappiness from Bohemian heritage hops. The beer is soft and delicate with subtle grassy notes and overall grainy taste. Clean and extremely sessionable, Reality Czeck proves that a light beer can still be full of flavor and invigorating to the senses.
