If You Know What's Good For You

It's very rarely that a beer makes it way through the brewery, and becomes unanimously loved by all of us. We often get questions about how we name beers, and while I don't want to scare people away, the truth is that it usually involves a lot of "that's seriously the stupidest name I've ever heard of" comments. We're pretty fiercely opinionated, which I don't necessarily think is a bad thing, it's just that it's not the best foundation for assent.

That being said, La Pitoune, the fantastic Keller Pils from Le Trou Du Diable has us all in a tizzy right now. Inspired by more full-flavoured, traditional pilsner recipes that originated in the Czech Republic and Germany, and migrated to modern day Italy, this beer is the perfect example of a well-executed lager.

Unfiltered and brewed using the naturally soft water in Shawinigan, QC, La Pitoune is pleasingly bitter with crisp grassy notes, subtle herbaceous aromatics, and a refreshingly dry finish. On the drinkability scale we rate it a solid 17 out of 10.

A limited supply of La Pitoune is available now in our brewpub, and best when consumed fresh -- so don't dilly-dally.
