Vunderbar Pils marks a departure from the last few short batches we have brewed. It's not high in alcohol. It doesn't use any kind of wild yeast, nor is it barrel-aged. It's a beer in the classic, if not archetypal, sense of the word. Best of all, it's blindingly delicious and drinkable. The low bitterness and moderate body make the beer conducive to some serious elbow bending; we went through five gallons here in less than twenty-four hours.
After all the kegging was done, we ended up with (27) 15.5-gallon kegs and (60) 5.16-gallon kegs. Final allocations and destinations have yet to be determined.
We also have designed these swank Vunderbar t-shirts. Wearing one tells the world "I'm formal, but I like to party," just in German. Greg Blanchard, our Head Brewer, models one below just before going to the cellar to take some Zahm hits off of BB 8, while blaring side two of the Dio classic, "Holy Diver."
The run is limited and will be on sale soon through our website and retail store. We'll let you know when they are available through the blog and Facebook/Twitter.
