Ale Odyssey - May/June 2023

In this Ale Odyssey, you’ll find a special re-brew of Hop Nation’s ‘Ratto Cane’ - an Italian Pilsner first brewed for Carwyn Cellar’s annual lager event; Lager is King! Italian Pilsner's are the new kid on the block - only being developed into what they are today in the '90s. Read more here: From swill to skill: the rise of the craft pilsner.
