Saint Wenceslas (b. 907, d. 929) – Because Bohemian hops were so valued, Wenceslas ordered the death penalty for anyone caught exporting the cuttings and obviously endeared himself to the local hop growers and brewers. He became the patron saint of Bohemia and Czechoslovakia and his crown became the symbol of nationalism for the Czechs. By extension he became a patron saint of Czech brewers. There also was King Wenceslas II in the 13th century, who convinced the Pope to revoke an order banning the brewing of beer, again endearing the Wenceslas name to local brewers.

Although his Fest Day is September 28, we celebrate St. Wenceslaus in the summer with a Bohemian Pilsener. It’s a clear, pale gold color with a rich and complex sense of malt aroma. Taste will be rich, with complex malt rounded nicely by spicy tones from the hops. The finish is clean and crisp.

AND, for the FIRST time, we have Saint specific glassware available. Only 60 glasses are available. No holdsies. This is the third glass in a set of four Saintly glassware series. If you have the first two, don’t miss out on this one! Beer and glass available starting Tuesday, May 28!
