Lesson details

What is pilsner beer, you ask? Well, for starters, it’s the only beer with an actual birth date! It came into the world on the 5th of October 1842 after locals had decided they’d had enough of the poor quality top-fermented beers they were being sold. A young Bavarian brewer took on the challenge of making a better brew and what he created has since become the most widely consumed beer around the world – the golden, easy drinking pilsner!
