“Premiant is our take on a traditional Czech pilsner,” says Alma Mader brewer and cofounder Nick Mader. “We rely on two varieties of Bohemian pilsner malt that help to lay a bready malt foundation, which balances the spicy and snappy Saaz bitterness. Floral and dried-lemon aromas, effortlessly crisp, and a perfect pairing with absolutely anything.”
