Continuing our dive into German beer styles this month, we've taken a deeper look into pilsner and kölsch styles of beer.

Pilsners are brewed using bottom-fermenting yeast (see our conversation on beer yeast for more detail) and originated in the Bohemian town of Plzen in the Czech Republic. Pilsner is a very common style in the Czech Republic as well as in Germany where for most of the past five hundred years, brewers have by law only been technically allowed to brew with bottom-fermenting lager yeast.

Following up on their sci-fi geek-targeted 2013 release of Vulcan Ale, Tin Man Brewery of Evansville, IN just released Warnog.
