    Where do y'all stand on Kneitinger and Faust?

    I was not a huge fan of the Faust Pils though to be fair I tried it after several Zwickels (which was great), Dunkels, Hefe, and their America IPA. Felt like it had a slightly tangy note but that could have been my palate being wrecked at the time. The tour is fantastic though, impressive how they crammed the brewery into such a tiny building and the barrel cellar is really cool to see.

    I enjoyed the Kneitinger Pils but the Bock was the real standout to me from that brewery.

    Faust as the best non-alcoholic Hefeweizen! They have some good other beers, but I cannot speak to the pilsner, had it once or twice, but cannot remember.

    Kneitinger was good, but not my favorite. However, that could simply be an availability thing.

    No one has mentioned Schells pils yet. Definitely my go to Pilsner (along with Urquell). Great price point, readily available, and delicious. My only complaint would be that they haven't canned it yet.

    Not the best. Not the worst. A touch too sweet and lacking some of the cracker crispness (TM). But it gets the job done on a hot day.

    Had first bottle last night, more to follow. Very light and clean, on the sweeter side for a pils. Love Ayinger.

    That's standard for Bavarian pils. The Franconian style is generally drier and more bitter.

    Alesmith's Spezial Pils cans are super legit...would never guess it was not a German import.

    Don't mind the Helles on the left....

    Chuckanut Pils is perfection and deserves to be in the running for the best American Pilsner. I'll fight anyone.

    Canning rumors have been floating around for awhile but with their new production facility I'm slightly more optimistic it will actually come to fruition.

    You really need to solve your August weekend plans so that we can at least have a battle of NW pilsners: Chuckanut, Heater Allen, pFriem, Upright:)

    Don't forget Holy Mountain ;)

    If only I could skip 2 weddings but alas it's back to my normally scheduled August weekends this year. If I get tickets for Friday's festivities I'll be down for sure, but I'd always be up for a Portland pilsner off another weekend you're in town. I've heard rumblings from libbey et al about setting something up...
