The Finger Lakes Thaw is an event in Ithaca, NY that showcases dozens of musical acts at multiple venues all around Ithaca. The organizers of the Thaw asked us to make a beer to help commemorate the event and together we came up with a NYS Dry Hopped Pilsner. This German style uses malt and hops from NYS to bring an incredibly refreshing and floral experience to your taste buds. It really makes you yearn for spring picnics and summer swimming. The NY Crystal hops bring out a wonderful floral aroma that balances exceptionally well with the German lager yeast that comes from a famous Monastery in Bavaria.
