The Zythologist For The Love Of Pils


The Zythologist’s beers typically give the brewers the opportunity to impart a scientific lesson, but For The Love Of Pils is no typical beer. The fundraising lager was made when brewery co-founder Shiv Tandom’s beloved cat, Pils – named after one of Shiv’s favourite styles – was hit by a car and partially paralysed while out on one of her many adventures.

It was an accident that resulted in an expensive procedure so, to help other cats receive the same level of treatment, 50 percent of proceeds from sales of this beer were donated to New Beginnings Animal Rescue. The beer behind the good cause is an absolute classic too, containing Saaz and Spalt hops, with Pilsen yeast from Melbourne-based Bluestone. The result is a bready, biscuity beer with a light spice and bitter finish ensuring that not only would Pils the cat be proud but so too, presumably, would Czech brewers.
