Wet Candidate

Pre-Prohibition Pilsner

Did you know?

We’ve brewed this Pre-Prohibition Pilsner, a truly American style of lager, in honor of the “wet candidate” politicians who were bold enough to voice their support of American brewers and their craft during the ramp-up to the Noble Experiment of Prohibition. Brewed with heritage corn and ambrosial Saaz hops, this recipe would be as familiar to brewers in 1918 as it is to the modern-day craftspeople of Cigar City Brewing.

Tasting Notes

Spicy, herbal hop aromas and cracker-like profile on the nose are complemented by the lightest notes of corn and honey. Snappy and crisp on the palate, bread-like malt flavors are punctuated by earthy hop notes, a clean bitterness, and bright, vibrant carbonation.
