Tomorrow is Tuesday and that means The Charleston Beer Exchange will be tapping an extremely rare and delicious keg for growler fills at 5 p.m.
This week's featured beer is Victory Braumeister Harvest Pils. This is a very fresh, wonderful dry-hopped German-Style Pilsner and is the only appearance of this beer in South Carolina. This beer is also lighter on the wallet than most Rare Beer Tuesday features, so take advantage.
Here's the commercial description of the brew:
Pure pils pleasure with a juicy jolt... Our latest single hop varietal pils features a fresh twist. A very fresh twist as whole flower hops went from the vine to the kettle in a mere 10 hours giving the beer a snap of freshness that has to be tasted to be believed. In 'wet hopped' beers such as this, the hops are full of fresh oils that dissipate when the hops normally dried. These essential oils give Braumeister Harvest Pils the clean, spicy hop aromas you'd expect from a pristine pilsner, followed by the long, satisfying mouthfeel full of flavorful hop depth and substance. All this flavor yields to clean malt and a crisp finish.
The Charleston Beer Exchange is located at 14 Exchange Street, downtown.
