Life On Tap Episode #351: Wish You Were Here (Threes Brewing Wish You Were Here - American Pilsner collaboration with Green Bench Brewing Company)

Dan cracks open another collaboration beer from Threes. This time, it’s their first American Pilsner with Green Bench, Wish You Were Here.

Threes Brewing Wish You Were Here

STYLE: American Pilsner
INGREDIENTS: Pilsner malt, New York corn, Carolina Gold rice, with American Mt. Hood and Crystal hops
ABV: 5.0%
AVAILABILITY: 16oz Cans, Draft (Limited)
COLLABORATION: Green Bench Brewing Company

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.


Super clear and gold in color with a half-inch, fluffy, white head.


A mix of earthy, fruity, and herbal notes with lemon, earthy spice a la sage, and some residual sweetness a la Asian pear.


Corn-sweet notes hit along with earthy/floral notes from the hops with a lovely minerality.


Fairly dry on the finish with a smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation.


This was a unique brew from Threes, who generally trends German with a splash of Czech with their lagers. Pairing-wise, you could go a number of different directions, but I was craving a grain bowl with farro or quinoa and sweet potato etc.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
