On June 12th, 2021 Troubled Monk celebrated its solid sixth year of creating craft beverages worth sharing. To commemorate this achievement, we have created for you a true pilsner, true in style and meaning to our iron strong bond that is impossible to break.
|IRON DRY HOPPED PILSNER|
A Good Pilsner is a True Mark of Brewing Greatness
Pilsners are harder to make because they are so subtle. There are no strong flavours to hide behind and little room for error. A beer favorite amongst many, Pilsners are crisp and clean, brisk and bitter, and simple in style. Troubled Monk’s Dry Hopped Pilsner, Iron, checks all the boxes, making it a memorable beer that will hold a special place in your heart and glass.
Iron greets you with wafting citrusy notes, and pours a crisp golden colour. Through a combination of reverse osmosis water and natural spring water from Lor-Al Springs, the crisp and clean profile of a true pilsner is achieved. A burst of citrusy lemon zest first greets you with slightly bitter orange peel, and light honey dew flavours. As it settles on to the back of your tongue notes of spice and a floral character come through, and are left lingering on your palette. This is brought on by the dry hopping process of the Canadian-grown Sasquatch hops.
Fun Fact: We make it easy to find that perfect “iron” gift for your craft beer-loving partner’s 6th wedding anniversary this summer. These 6 packs even come with a free 20 ounce Pilsner glass.
A Bond as Strong as Iron
Iron is considered a traditional sixth wedding anniversary gift, so we used this inspiration to acknowledge our own achievement. We are proud of the strength of our Troubled Monk team. Iron is a perfect representation to showcase the strong bond that has held us together through six years of trials and tribulations, successes and failures, blissful sips and lack luster pour outs. We feel the durability of this team can’t be broken, and that is why the can’s label showcases the names of each employee as a way to pay tribute to every member of the team. We have survived the first 5 years, and are proud to be at the solid six. Nothing is going to cut through our iron bond to rip us apart.
Happy Anniversary, Central Alberta!
