Bavik Super Pils

(1 customer review)

This is a slightly bitter, very quaffable and thirst-quenching pils with refreshing, delicate hop aromas.

Description

The Beer

Bavik Super Pils’ name did not come out of the blue. In most pils beers, a higher-density wort is brewed and water is added after fermentation using the so-called ‘high gravity’ method.

But this is not how De Brabandere goes about its brewing. In the brewhall, all of the ingredients are added to the water straight away.

In other words, the ingredients are not diluted and this explains the “super” quality and full taste of this pils.

Bavik Super Pils is made using aroma hops only, which accounts for its characteristic, delicate and refreshing taste of hop bitters.

Towards the end of the brewing process the beer enters a long period of cold storage without pasteurisation.

Eight days spent in fermentation and 30 days in cold storage ensure that the beer is naturally clear with a stable, consistent taste.

Unsurprisingly, this pils continues to scoop awards. De Brabandere has stuck to its traditional recipe for five generations and, as always, time and quality prove the most important factors in producing a good beer.

Bavik Super Pils was recently given a retro-style make-over, with the oh-so recognisable Bavik logo, the red colour that harks back to a previous era, and the legendary “super pils” strap line.

Just like in the good old days, the name of Bavik Super Pils is once more proudly displayed on glasses, bottles and beer mats.

    This is without a doubt the best pilsner in the world! No corn, no rice, just very well made and unpasteurised!!
