Pints & Purls Edition 14: Blue Paddle Pilsner Lager

This is the fourteenth in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!  None of the breweries or yarn companies are compensating me – these are just my opinions on my personal experiences!


Brew: Blue Paddle Pilsner Lager

Brewer: New Belgium

Malts: Pale, Munich, Carapils, Aromatic

Hops: Saaz, Liberty, TargetIMG_9856

Flavors:  Refreshing, clean, and ever so slightly floral.  This beer is crisp on the inside with a smooth malt playing back up to the herbal hops.  The finish is quick and dry.

Knit Pairings:  Because this beer is so easy to drink, it’s a great afternoon beer.  It’s nothing crazy or out of the box like last week’s HiCu was, and it really just needs a standard yarn and project to go with it – a basic beanie with an inch or so of ribbing at the bottom, stockinette body, standard increases with a wool blend yarn so that you can throw it in the wash without thinking about it.


Let me know what you think!  Suggestions for future beers, more/different information to include, this is a work in progress so I won’t be offended by constructive advice!

  1. My wife picked up a six pack of this fine brew last weekend, needless to say its all gone now. 🙂 We are in the middle of Oktoberfest “season”, do you have any hefeweizen, German or more seasonal brew posts on tap? Either way, I can’t wait. Take care and be well!
