It is well known that Pils is not only the "favourite beer of the Germans", it is also the most widely brewed beer in Germany. It tastes best freshly tapped with a fine head of froth. Characteristic of the cool blond beer is its clear, golden yellow colour, its hoppy taste and its fine bitter note. This varies from Pils to Pils, as does the intensity of the hop aroma - depending on which yeast, hop and malt varieties are used in brewing. Of course, Pils is also at the top of the product range in many Franconian home breweries. It is brewed according to the Bavarian Purity Law, from the best raw materials and with a lot of passion. We have almost thirty different types of Franconian pilsner in our range - and the trend is rising. They all have an average alcohol content of 5 percent and an original gravity of between 12 and 15 percent. And each pilsner has its own unique taste. It is worth trying!
The Pilsner 1842 originated in the Czech city of Pilsen. Because they were not satisfied with the quality of the beer, the young Bavarian master brewer Josef Groll was brought in. He managed to brew a beer that was perfect for the Pilseners at cool temperatures from local barley and hop varieties, the best Pilsener water and Bavarian yeast that he had brought from home. The new beer quickly became famous beyond the borders. The only disadvantage: Since Groll used bottom-fermented yeast for his "Pils", brewing was only possible at low temperatures and: The beer had to be stored in a cool place. At that time, Franconian brewers were also faced with this challenge. They usually brewed only in winter and stored their "Pils" on ice in cellars. Many of the cellars are preserved in Franconia until today and so some (beer) celebrations take place simply "on the cellar", as we Franconians say. Only the invention of modern cooling techniques made the production of "Pils" possible all year round.
Do you really need seven minutes for a perfect Pils? We think: If you pour your Pils by hand, you should take your time and pour the Pils into the glass after us. Then the head will be really perfect. If the Pils comes from a modern, pressure-controlled tapping system, the whole thing goes faster - with the same result. In any case, we have not noticed any differences in taste.

Franconian mushrooms can be seen in many dishes. A Franconian pilsner tastes particularly good, for example, with a snack, Sunday roast, a crispy shovel, homemade Ziebeleskäse or grilled fish.
