Brewed at Green Bench in St. Petersburg, Florida, this lager was a six-way collaboration that included Atlanta’s Monday Night and Halfway Crooks, Denver’s Cohesion, Schilling Beer of New Hampshire, and Threes of Brooklyn, New York. Its namesake is the tour bus that drove these brewers around Czechia in 2022 as part of a trade mission supported by the Czech Ministry of Agriculture.
The Bus Beer Světlý Ležák 12° is triple-decocted and brewed with imported Moravian malt and whole-leaf Bohemian Saaz. Green Bench cofounder and head brewer Khris Johnson says the beer “was inspired by a life-changing week spent in the Czech Republic with an incredible group of people. Na zdraví!”
