Praise the Maize (02)
From Charlottesville to Falls Church, Virginia…

18 July 2012.

**************
PRAISE THE MAIZE

Classic American Pilsner (Pre-Prohibition style, that is, a higher bitterness level than American Pilsners from WWII onward, and with corn, just not as high a percentage as latter day recipes).

Homebrew by James Barlow

The name of the beer inspired by a 1997 interview about the use of corn in beer.
