Asbury Festhalle to host “Meet the Brewmaster” with Pilsener Urquell’s Vaclav Berka
Barrels of unfiltered and unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell will be on tap with special Festhalle pairing menu
Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten, the Jersey Shore’s first authentic Austro-Hungarian Asbury Park, will be serving four special kegs of unfiltered, unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell for a special “Meet the Brewmaster” event with Pilsner Urquell’s Brewmaster Vaclav Berka.
"For an additional $18.42, (the date Pilsner Urquell was founded) patrons who purchased one of the limited, authentic pilsners can partake in a prix fixe pairing menu of select appetizers, entrees and dessert from the Festhalle’s Executive Chef James Avery.
“It’s a rare, unusual event. Four kegs of unfiltered, unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell are available in the United States at Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten. Pilsner Urquell was very cool to send such a special beer to us to be served out of our authentic 130-year-old Pilsner Urquell tap. The only other way to get would be to hop a plane and fly to Europe,” said Managing Partner Jennifer Lampert.
“All other pilsners are ultimately derivations of the authentic Czech pilsner,” Bryan Panzica of Pilsner Urquell said. “This is Pilsner Urquell in its original form as it was served 172 years ago, and we know that because of our parallel brewing process.”
Reservations not required.
