A Pilsner is a type of beer that was created in 1842 in the Czech Republic. When it was first created the breweries would brew this type of beer in a cave or cellar. They needed a place that would be relatively cool during the brewing and storage of the beer. However, today they have large brewing tanks that are used during the brewing process. A pilsner beer is brew with a lightly malted  barley and usually a variety hops that is considered spicy. These two things are what give the Pilsner its taste, aroma , and color. A Pilsner is a very clean refreshing beer that pairs well with many different foods. Some of the foods it goes well with are  chicken, fish, and all sorts of spicy Mexican food. I encourage you all to try this type of beer, so many before you have and they loved it. That is why its one of the most popular beers in the world. A typical Pilsner beer is about 5% alcohol, however some have a little less and some have a little more. Some of the top rated Pilsners are Reality Czeck, Danish Dream, Barmen Pilsner and Cerna Hora.
