Sam Tierney, Brewery Manager at the Propagator R&D Brewhouse, joined the Craft Beer & Brewing podcast alongside Highland Park Brewery founder Bob Kunz and Humble Sea co-founder Nick Pavlina for a roundtable discussion about pilsners. Sam, of course, brought to the table a crisp glass of our highly drinkable West Coast Lager Welcome To LA.

In this episode, the brewers go in deep discussing the challenges that come from building a body and structure that balances hop loads in a lean beer, avoiding excessive malt complexity to allow the hops to shine, and more. If you’ve ever wondered about how your favorite pilsners came to be, it’s worth a listen.
