A Note on This Beer
I like hiking. Except for the uphill part.
I absolutely crush the first hundred feet, but the remaining 1,000+? Catch me gulping water like an elephant at a watering hole as I ask every descending hiker, “how much further?”
Still, despite their inevitably disappointing answers, I always make it to the top. For the celebratory summit beer, of course!
And, not just any summit brew — Modist’s ultra-refreshing Fang & Bone oak-aged Pilsner. This uniquely complex New Zealand-style Pils flows with all the rejuvenating power I need to relax and enjoy the view.
Brewed with Pilsner and wheat malt, and aged in Modist’s oak foeders, each sip bursts with all the honey-drizzled, biscuity flavor of an expertly crafted Pilsner, with a delightfully woody twist. Thanks to a double dry-hopping of NZ Wakatu and Nelson Sauvin Hops, a swell of fresh pine comes through on the finish, inviting another crisp sip.
Sure, I could’ve spent my Saturday sprawled across a beach towel. But, a beer of this caliber deserves to be sipped during moments of personal triumph; like after you clock out of work on a sunny Friday afternoon, finish up all that overdue yard work, or finally get that last kid to bed!
