Beer Pick: Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner

Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner

Avery Brewing Company, Boulder, Col.

$8.99/six-pack cans at metro beverage stores.

Avery-joes6pkCansProfile: Adam Avery calls Joe’s Premium American Pilsner “a contemporary rendition of a classic style.” Of course, that style — easy-drinking American pale lager, in cans, no less — is the butt of many a joke among craft beer lovers. But Avery elevates Joe’s with floral Noble German hops, giving it a zippy, spicy bitterness and a refreshing dry finish perfect for sipping through the warm days of spring and summer.

Pair with: Avery suggests matching Joe’s with mild, creamy cheeses like havarti or herb-covered chevre. But it’s the kind of good canned beer that’s ready made for backyard cookouts — and all the family and friends that show up, including the ones who only drink light lager.

Cans are superior to bottles for packaging beer. Canned beer will not skunk. Just be sure to serve in an appropriate glass, such as a Pilsner or pint glass to fully appreciate what Adam Avery has brewed for us.

Thanks for sharing.

Canned beer is superior packaging. It won’t skunk like the clear, green or even brown glass bottles will. Be sure to serve in appropriate glassware, such as a Pilsner or pint glass.

Can you compare this to the Sam Adams Noble Pils? Hell, I will just buy some at Ale Yeah on the way home.

Thanks for sharing Bob.

Hindu, I’m not an expert like BT, but I found the Avery Joe’s to be a much more “classic” pilsner, while the Sam Adams Noble Pils has a lot more hop character. Both are very good.
