Von Elrod’s Releases Neighborhood Pilsner and Plans Stein & Swine Fête

Von Elrod’s Beer Hall & Kitchen has always maintained a laser focus on their beer program, which is not surprising when you know about owner Austin Ray’s dedication to craft brews. For the month of May, Von Elrod’s has two big announcements that demonstrate this commitment to great regional beers.

The first is a collaboration with Jackalope Brewing Co. to create a locally brewed, “Neighborhood Pilsner,” a beer which will offer portion of the proceeds from every pint sold going toward local neighborhood organizations and charities. Neighborhood Pilsner is a crisp light beer with an ABV of 5.2% so you can enjoy more than one and still remember your trip to Von Elrod’s. Crafted using Pilsen malt and noble hops, Neighborhood Pilsner could quickly become a summer favorite.

Von Elrod’s Neighborhood Pilsner will be priced regularly at $6.50 for a half-liter stein and $12 for a full liter and will be available on tap at both Von Elrod’s and Jackalope’s taprooms, but if you want to be the first to try it, you’re invited to celebrate its official launch at 4 p.m. this Thursday, May 9, at Von Elrod’s in Germantown. The tapping party will run in conjunction with Von Elrod’s weekly “Big Stein Thursday”, which means attendees will be able to order any 1-liter stein, including the Neighborhood Pilsner, for the price of a 0.5-liter stein. That’s a tough deal to beat!

Later this month on May 18, Von Elrod’s is rolling out another Nashville beer debut with a picnic-style whole hog barbecue party that they are calling Stein & Swine. From noon to 5 p.m., they’ll be serving up pulled pork tacos and sandwiches along with eight different beers from Blackberry Farm Brewery. Among that octet will be the first opportunity in Nashville to try their new Yallarhammer Pale Ale, a hoppy beer that should appeal to fans of high-IBU beers. In addition to the food and drink, Von Elrod’s will present live string band music from The Nashlings at this free event.
