North X Beak Brewery - Italian Pils 4.8% ABV 440ml Can
Brewed in collaboration with Beak Brewery in Lewes, we’ve made a clean, crisp and hoppy Italian Pilsner. We’ve utilised heritage Haná Malt, the first ever variety of malt to be used in a Golden Pilsner recipe in Bavaria back in 1842, in 100% of the grist bringing subtle notes of freshly baked bread, a crisp and foamy body and a bright golden hue. We’ve used one of our favourite hops, Czech Saaz, in both the whirlpool and dry hop in pure powdered Lupomax and T90 format. Czech Saaz is full of incredibly bright and vibrant flavour, most notably a fresh and herbaceous quality with a gentle touch of lemon zest and floral aroma.
Refold worked with Beak’s Jay Cover to create the beautiful can label. With all parties involved in the making of the beer being very familiar with Leeds, Jay Cover drew and coloured one of Leeds’ most famous Brutalist structures, the Leeds University Roger Stevens Building, in his signature style using simple line and primary colours. Refold then took Jay’s drawing, breaking and fragmenting it into a new arrangement inspired by sixties children's illustrations and taking inspiration from Italian artist, inventor and designer Bruno Munari.
