Young Lions Italian Pilsner

Fast cars and slow meals. Life in Italy is all about balance. Passionate pursuit of quality, in life, leads to a quality of life that could only come from this country’s unique terroir. Our newest pilsner combines the subtle sweetness of barley grown in Eraclea, with the full spectrum of floral spice achieved through dry hopping with choice noble varietals Tettnang and Saphir. Refined, radiant and reminiscent all the same, this belladonna of balanced beers. Salute! – YL

Young Lions

Our Young Lions series of beers are all conceived, created and crafted by the next generation of brewers at Hoyne. Brewmaster Sean Hoyne lends his experience and knowledge to help them experiment with the art of brewing craft beer – much in the same way that Frank Appleton shared his experience with Sean.
