Hale's Ales is pleased to announce a Limited Release of Bill'sner Pils 2015.
Seattle, WA - February 25th 2015 - Pilsners are
back! The beer style your dad, and probably his dad, so enjoyed is
receiving new attention from craft brewers and craft beer lovers all
over the region.
And, with the release of Bill'sner Pils,
Hale's Ales Brewery is excited to be part of the Northwest resurgence
of this old world beer style, this time locally made and fresh!

Hale's Bill'sner Pils is named after a long time Hale's employee, Bill Preib, who, along with other Hale's crew members, developed a growing appreciation for the crisp, cool taste of a pilsner,
especially as an alternative to the ubiquitous strong and assertively
hopped India Pale Ales so prevalent in the NW craft beer scene. "Strike
that from the bucket list," said Preib, "...a beer with my name on it.
If only mom could see me now!"
a new direction for Hale's, the longest running independently owned
brewery in the Northwest with a 32 year history of brewing primarily
English style ales.

Hale's Bill'sner Pils is
brewed using an imported pilsner malt produced by Best Malts in
Heidelberg, Germany. Hale's is the only brewery in the region using
this particular malt. "We experimented with many different malts," said
Hale's head brewer Lincoln Zmolek, "but this one gave us the clean,
flavorful pils we were looking for."
Bill'sner Pils will be released in March in both kegs and 22 oz. bottles. Hale's will brew this new beer throughout most of the summer. Look for Bill'sner Pils at your favorite pub or bottle shop!
