There's nothing as refreshing as a crisp Pilsner but what could make it even more refreshing? Maybe that deep breath of mountain air but, how do we harness it? Spruce Tips! Spruce Tips add an amazing aroma and piney/resinous notes on the tongue. Traditional Hallertau hops give this "mountain" pils floral and spicy notes making it even crisper and enjoyable as on the palate. (For the label I thought something like hops growing on a spruce branch could be neat! Or visa versa as then it'd be "sprucing it up")
