“STS” is the 3-letter code for our local Sonoma County airport, the Charles M. Schulz Airport. STS Pils is a classic German-style pilsner but with a Russian River twist because we dry hop this beer with a small amount of European hops. It is straw in color and will often have a slight haze due to the fact that there is a small amount of yeast left in the beer. This beer is hop-forward with a firm malt foundation, strong lager yeast characteristic, and a dry, bitter finish.

A truly great Pilsner is a difficult beer to perfect, as its light crisp flavor profile leaves little room for error. Modern brewing techniques (such as open-top fermentation) and old-world traditions create the distinct qualities in STS Pils.

On the afternoon of 26th March 2019 my wife and I tried four flights (of four beers) in the centre section of the Bagby Beer Company in Oceanside, two flights of their own beers and two flights of guests. This is one of those 16 beers. Light golden body, wispy white head. Standard Pils in every way, refreshing and easy to drink, very little aroma or actual taste. Light grainy nose and flavour if you sniff and dig deep enough. Just average really, surprised it's in the top 50 for the style, maybe the breweries name and fame have clouded some peoples scoring?

Tap at the brewpub. Pours clear pale yellow. Really a nice pilsener. Great bitterness, solid balance of dry and still a little sweet. Refreshing. Good.
