Pickett’s Village Bar Partners with Four City Brewing to Create Special Edition House Beer: Pickett’s Pilz Lets Beer Lovers Drink Well While Doing Good

Proceeds Benefit Meeting Essential Needs with Dignity (MEND), an Essex County-Based Hunger Relief Network

Refreshing Summer Pilsner Available on Tap and in Cans

We’re celebrating a new brew that not only tastes great, it does good. Pickett’s has partnered with Four City Brewing to create Pickett’s Pilz, a crisp and refreshing American style pilsner. Proceeds from every purchase will benefit Meeting Emergency Needs with Dignity (MEND), a hunger relief network that serves Essex County.

“Pickett’s Pilz is a natural evolution of the restaurant’s ongoing commitment to quality beer, our communities and other local businesses. We’re extremely proud of our beer program – a revolving list of 24 quality beers on tap as well as a robust offering of domestic and international bottles and cans – and we’re excited to add Pickett’s Pilz to the line-up.” General Manager, Nicholas Ciccone.

Pickett’s Pilz is a crisp and refreshing American-style pilsner dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin, giving it an aromatic flavor profile of ripe tropical fruit. Pickett’s Pilz is brewed by Four City Brewing Company in Orange, NJ. Sales of Pickett’s Pilz will benefit MEND, an organization that provides critically needed support to our communities during these very challenging times.

“Food insecurity is a persistent issue, and it’s only been exacerbated by the lingering pandemic effects and increasing inflation. While many people can dig a little deeper to cover the rising cost of their grocery bills, those who look to our member pantries and community partners for support do not have this luxury,” said Robin Peacock, Executive Director of MEND. “This partnership with Pickett’s Village Bar will help raise needed funds for high quality, fresh and healthy, culturally relevant food for Essex County families.”

Orange, NJ, was home to the first local brewery in 1901, and is now home to Four City Brewing Company. The 4,300 square foot taproom is purposefully local, and the partnership with Pickett’s benefiting MEND reflects that mindset.

Pickett’s Pilz is available exclusively at Pickett’s Village Bar, on tap for $8, with four-packs of 16-oz. cans available for $15.
