Labatt Blue is a clean, refreshing pilsner with a distinctive hoppy aroma, a delicate character, and a slightly sweet aftertaste.
The pilsner-style lager comes from the Czech Republic, where it was first brewed in 1842. Today pilsner has grown beyond Europe and North America to become the world's most popular kind of beer, brewed from Brazil to Beijing.
The light body and fresh taste of a pilsner make it a versatile partner for many different foods. Steve enjoys Blue with classic bar fare like burgers and pizza, but it also makes a refreshing match with spicier fare like hot wings or Mexican food.
