La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - La Crosse's Pearl Street Brewery is releasing a new bottled beer.
Its called Rubber Mills Pils and it is infused with La Crosse history. The name Rubber Mills comes from the building the Pearl Street Brewery now calls home. The La Crosse Footwear Building produced rubber boots worn by brewers across the country for more than 100 years. Rubber boots are an essential part of a brewers attire, since a brewery is a wet work environment.
Some of you may have already tried this local brew on tap at some of the pubs around town, but tomorrow Rubber Mills Pils will be available for the first time in bottles.
Brewmaster Joe Katchever said, "We use a whole leaf raw Czechoslovakian Saaz hops for this brew, and that really gives it a distinct pilsner and traditional pilsner flavor."
For all of you collectors out there, Joe will be making appearances at Festival Foods and Woodman's in July and August to sign batch number 1 six packs.
