Village Hacky Sack

Village Brewery and Eighty-Eight Brewing have teamed up to craft a summer brew that will keep you light on your feet. Hacky Sack is a Lemon Lime Pilsner that reminds us to savour the summer and take some time get on the grass and kick the ball around.

ABV: 5% 
BITTERNESS: 26 IBU
HOPS: Columbus Motueka Hersbrucker.
MALT: Rahr Premium Pilsner Rahr Malted Wheat Best Acidulated Malt. 

The malty profile is essential to begin the flavor base. The classics are present in the form of Pilsner and Wheat (to give you some of that mouthfeel). The malt is accentuated by using balanced and clean fermenting Isar Lager Yeast from Escarpment. As the beer flows over your palate you will start getting hints of the spicy-floral characteristics of Hersbrucker hops leading way to the zesty flavour of Motueka hops. All of a sudden: "Oh what's that citrusy sensation?!" you think. "Is that Kefir Lime?!" It is. Yes, it is.
