Full-cone Magnum, Aurora, and Spalter Select hops from
the Mühlviertel infuse this beer with its spicy, dry, characteristically pilsner flavor.
The Hofstettner Pils: A pilsner for beer lovers. Through the exclusive use of full-cone Mühlviertel hops, we have created a soft, bitter, floral beer with a fine, prickling carbonation.
The combination of our local Mühlviertel water, perfectly-timed hop additions, cold fermentation, and classic lagering techniques makes this the perfect pilsner.
The hop additions take place at various points during the boil using 3 different varieties. The Mühlviertel Magnum provides the bitter foundation, the Mühlviertel Aurora – with its large, sun-soaked cones – begins building the floral bouquet, and the Spalter Select – a relative of Saaz – provides an especially mild yet characteristic hop finish.
Our hops not only provide this beer with its pleasant bitterness, but they also contain a number of important compounds (such as polyphenols and flavanoide), which contribute to your health and well-being.
On this point, Prof. Donald Buhler of Oregon State University astutely said, “While drinking beer might not always cure what ails you, it can definitely help…”
