Bat Outta Helles
Bavarian Style Helles Lager
ABV 4.8% • IBU 22 • Timeframe: Something something
Originally developed by a Munich brewmaster in 1895, the Munich Helles lager came about due to necessity. The Czech town of Plzen had introduced a new, extremely pale lager with a huge, heady hop aroma without excess bitterness--thanks to their very soft water. That beer still rules the world today as pilsner (in its various, not-so-traditional incarnations) is the go to brew across cultures. Still, that Munich brewmaster’s legacy--brewing with water much closer to our aquifer water than the soft water of Plzen--struck a delicate balance of silky, light malt flavor and herbal hop nuance to create a refreshing and rewarding beer.
Traditional, but not your typical pale lager, Bat Outta Helles comes to you fresh from the heart of San Antonio and celebrates our own long brewing heritage. Brewed with German Pilsner and Munich malts, a combination of American and German hops and Edwards Aquifer water then lagered for at least a month--long enough to remember how much we owe to the innovators in our industry.
