Pueblo Vida Brewing in Tucson, Arizona, first released Willa in 2020, when the recently named Lórien was still known as IH033.
“This beer was our ode to new meets old,” says head brewer Landon Swanson. “It’s a classic light lager with a punch of Lórien hops in the fermentor. This lager comes out slightly hazy by design. There is a nice, bright lime note from the Lórien hops and a neutral grain character from the American-grown pilsner malt.”
