Next week, Saint Arnold Brewing Co. will be releasing a new beer using a hop varietal named after the Czech city of Žatec.
The new beer is 5 O’Clock Pils, a 5.2 percent ABV pilsner that incorporates Saaz hops from the Czech Republic. The Houston, Texas-based brewery has used the combination before in Icon Red: Bohemian Pils, a 5.2 percent ABV pilsner released in 2013.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) , 5 O’Clock Pils will be packaged in 12-ounce cans and a tweet on Saint Arnold’s Twitter page indicates that the beers will begin shipping on April 11.
