Urban Village Brewing, a small-batch brewery in Northern Liberties, is exploring different variations of malt with its Audition Pilsner series of beers, writes Emily Kovach for the PA Eats.

Urban Village’s founder and co-owner Dave Goldman said that the brewery has been rolling out a different 5% ABV Audition Pilsner for the last several years, and each batch was made using malt from a different supplier.

“It’s been a fun experiment, and if you came in often, you could try all the different supplier versions,” said Goldman. “We got to taste each batch, and going from batch to batch, you do see a variety of outcomes.

The version that featured Deer Creek Malthouse’s Colonial Pilsner Malt stood out especially with “a really distinctive and pleasant flavor profile,” he added.

That type of malt is so versatile that in addition to using it for Audition Pilsner, Urban Village decided to add it to the recipe when the brewery was creating its own version of light beer.

“We knew that we’d use Colonial Pilsner, because we wanted to keep the flavor fairly neutral, but wanted it to taste really pleasant,” said Goldman.
