This beer showcases Steffi barley from family-owned Wisota Farm in the Palouse region of Washington State. Organic growers favor this full-flavored variety, as it is naturally resilient and requires little in terms of modern farming inputs. Brewed as a Pilsner style lager, Steffi brings fragrant notes of cracked hazelnuts, sweet cedar, and spicy freshly shaved ginger, resulting in a beer that is simultaneously comforting and exciting. Hanabi Lager is natural and unpasteurized. Store and serve cold. 

Thanks to his winemaking efforts at Screaming Eagle, I've become friends with Nick Gislason, their winemaker since 2008 and tasted his pilot batches of Pilsner when he graciously donated and poured a mini keg at our inaugural Inspire Napa Valley 2018. Now Nick, his wife and some winemaking colleagues are brewing seasonal lagers in their brewery workshop in south Napa. Inspired by old-world lager brewing techniques, and using heirloom barley varieties with great flavors, they are brewing lagers that are complex, yet still vibrant and refreshing.
