Customers have spoken and GLBC has listened! On Thursday, December 17, 2009 (the 106th anniversary of the first fixed-wing flight), GLBC’s Brewpub will release The Wright Pils, a classic pilsner style beer with a flowery bouquet and elegantly dry finish. Named after the brothers Wright who built the world’s first successful controlled airplane, this pilsner, like these local heroes, has all the Wright stuff! In early 2010, expect to see The Wright Pils in 6-packs in the GLBC Gift Shop, as well as on draft in Concourse C at Cleveland Hopkins Airport! TYPE/STYLE: Pilsner. Until the 1840s, most Bohemian (now Czech Republic) beers were top-fermented, dark and cloudy, although Bavarian brewers had begun experimenting through "lagering" beer in cool caves using bottom-fermenting yeasts, which improved the beer’s clarity, flavor, and shelf-life. The Burgess Brewery recruited the Bavarian brewer Josef Groll who, using new techniques and the newly available paler malts, created the first batch of modern pilsener on October 5, 1842. The combination of pale color from the new malts (aided by the Bohemian city of Plzen’s remarkably soft water), noble hops and Bavarian-style lagering produced a clear, golden beer which caused a sensation. Improving transport and communications also meant that this new beer was quickly available throughout Central Europe, and its style was soon widely imitated. FOOD COMPLEMENTS: Works well as an aperitif and with salads, salmon, tuna and marbled meats

    Beer #3 from the Ohio Marathon gas station Mix 6. Light yellow colored pour, fluffy medium white head, some lacing. Lemons and grass, lightly hopped, light sweet malts, but spot-on and damn tasty. Another Great Lakes winner.

    pours a nice darker yellow, with a small head but the head does hang around for a while. It has a nice pleasant aroma of hops. slightly flowery taste but with a mild nutty taste with a nice dry finish. This one is slightly better in draft as you get a better nuttier taste.

    Draft at the brewpub on a sunny winter afternoon. Pours a clear straw yellow color with a thin, lasting white head and streaky lacing. Mild aroma of grass and peppery hops. Crisp and light with a decent bitterness, it drinks really well. Spicy pepper, mild light fruits and grassy malt flavors along with a mild nuttiness. all in all is came across as a lighter version of their Dortmunder.
