    I have been drinking more pilsners lately. I really like Prima Pils and Pivo Pils. Any others out there that are easy to get (shelf)?

    Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella comes to mind.
    Lagunitas

    Though I'd just consistently crush Pivo if I was you.

    Earlier this year I went on a pils hunt too. I enjoyed Sunshine Pils by Troegs
    I'm sure you get some of their distro

    Neshaminy's Trauger pils is pretty great local shelf stuff. Fresh Pikeland Pils. Triumph makes a mean pilsner as well (not shelf but maybe local enough?)

    I'm a surprisingly big fan of Popgun Pils from Speakeasy.

    IMO Pivo is peak shelf pilsner. I used to crush that all the time before Societe (my local) started making their own pilsner.

    Oh, and Cellarmaker Typo Pills totally owns. I prefer it to Pivo quite a bit (Pivo's hopping can be pretty harsh when it's fresh). It's obviously much harder to get (growler-only), but you know.

    These are my favorite two packaged American examples I've had, Pivo especially.

    Hill Farmstead Mary is my favorite pilsner I've had, the keg after FoFA at Shitlord Manor was so on point.

    Pivo is probably my favorite.

    I think Pizza Port Pick 6 is pretty decent too. Let me know if you want me to send you a few cans and I'll be happy to do so.

    I feel this thread isn't complete without mentioning the $5.49 4 packs of fresh Pilsner Urquell tallboys. IMO one of the best deals in beer but what the shit do I know

    I did a blind tasting and Scrimshaw actually won beating the likes of Pivo (which I dig).

    This was basically what I drank all over Germany when I was there. Love it.

    I also love fresh Paulaner Original
