Sipping Trees with India Spruce Pilsner

spruceTo walk through the woods of Northern Michigan is to breathe deep the therapeutic scents of blue spruce. Understanding that not everyone in the state of Michigan has the opportunity to enjoy that rejuvenating experience as often as we do, in 2007 Joe Short created India Spruce Pilsner to bring the holistic benefits of spruce needles to the entire state. Now, we at Short’s are so very pleased to announce the release of the 2014 batch of India Spruce Pilsner beginning July 30!

India Spruce Pilsner (7.0% ABV, 85 IBU) is an Imperial Pilsner, fermented with local, hand-picked blue spruce tips. The spruce presence, rooted in historical brewing practices, is enormous and gives the beer a refreshing gin quality. This beer is impressively light bodied, considering the immense spruce flavors and the prodigious additions of hops.

Find your quiet walk in the woods with a six pack of India Spruce Pilsner. Your spirit will thank you.
