Main Street Brewing – Rue Principale Pilsner Review

One of the new additions to BC craft beer is the Main St. Brewing Company and while they are not yet open they have contracted their brewing out to Russell Brewing getting beer onto the shelves early. The Main Street Pilsner is the staple of this new brand pouring a golden hue topped with one finger of head. Through the relatively thin head comes grassy tones, crisp malt, mild hops and a slight sweetness. The taste is a beautiful medley of mellow tones. The beer is quite light but still has flavour that makes for a very enjoyable beer. The malted base is crisp and refreshing with notes of grass and a slight citrus. Mellow and mild sweetness and hops also come into play but stay in the background making for an overall smooth and very enjoyable beer. This is a traditional style Pilsner that does not scream anything loudly. If you pick up a bottle of this fantastic tasting beer you might as well grab a few extras while you are at it. With Summer here and many more hot days to come soon the Main Street Pilsner is sure to be a BC Summer Staple for years to come.

    A great local easy drinking beer.
    It’s so nice to have a craft beer that doesn’t have to be over hoppy and is proud to be a pilsner.
    Great taste and smell.
