We were remiss in mentioning that in his What’s Brewing column last week, The Star‘s Josh Rubin presented a feature on Petr Janik, brewmaster at the legendary Plzensky Prazdroj brewery, better known in these parts as Pilsner Urquell.
In addition to talking about the brewing process for the world’s original pilsner, Janik also offers his opinions on five locally produced examples of the style: Stratford Pilsner, J.R. Brickman Pilsner, Old Credit Pale Pilsner, Steam Whistle & King Pilsner. He touts the King as his favourite, with the Brickman coming in a close second.
While we’re at it, we might as well mention that Rubin has also recently done write-ups on Wellington Imperial Stout and Bah Humbug Christmas Cheer Ale.
