A unique brew! Kind of tangy and tart with a bitterness of mate.

Rising Silo Brewery & Gaucho Brazilian Grille, are pleased to brew for you a Yerba Mate Pilsner.
This light, crisp, smooth lager emboldens the flavor profile of Yerba Mate, often described as earthy, smoky, spicy and slightly bitter. Added benefits of the mate herb (Ilex paraguariensis) include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, polyphenols, amino acids and mateine. The legendary Yerba Mate is made from a holly tree native to the South American rainforest. The plant's leaves and twigs are fire-dried to comprise the tea. Referred to as the Gaucho's "mate tea" and "drink of the Gods" for it's rejuvenating and invigorating nourishment. The "drink of friendship" is traditionally shared by the filling and passing of the mate gourd and through the gathering of friends. We hope to foster a similar spirit of community and good will over this new hybrid brew!
