From Tree to Tastebuds

39 days ago, the finest local blue spruce tips were harvested by hand. 38 days ago, a beer that epitomizes our company was brewed and fermentation began.  Today, bottles of India Spruce Pilsner are being released throughout the great state of Michigan.

An annual favorite, India Spruce Pilsner is an Imperial Pilsner that was originally crafted as part of the 2007 Imperial Series. The spruce presence, rooted in historical brewing practices, is enormous and gives the beer a refreshing quality reminiscent of gin. This beer is impressively light-bodied, considering the immense spruce flavors and the prodigious additions of hops.

The Captain of this Short’s ship, Joe Short, sees India Spruce Pilsner (7% ABV, 85 IBU) as the quintessential symbol for his love of hops and craft beer. Grab a 6 pack today to experience the significance!
