Oliver Square Small Batch Tap
It’s always fun to create the Brewsters beers that people know and love, but the true passion of any brewer is to try new things, experiment, and just see what works. We create small batches of different styles of beer at our Oliver Square Edmonton brewpub to satisfy both our curiosity and yours. And when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Kaiser Wilhelm German Style Pilsner
The Pilsner beer was first brewed in Bohemia, a German-speaking province in the old Austrian Empire. Pilsner is one of the most popular styles of lager beers in Germany, and in many other countries. It’s often spelled as "Pilsener", and often times abbreviated, or spoken in slang, as "Pils."
Classic German Pilsners are very light straw to golden in color. Head should be dense and rich. They are also well-hopped, brewed using Noble hops such has Saaz, Hallertauer, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Tettnanger, Styrian Goldings, Spalt, Perle, and Hersbrucker. These varieties exhibit a spicy herbal or floral aroma and flavor, often times a bit coarse on the palate, and distribute a flash of citrus-like zest--hop bitterness can be high.
Malt: 2Row, Carapils and Wheat
