Well, Pilsner Urquell uses open fermenters. You can't get less pressure than that :) I also heard a recent interview with Vinnie from Russian River where he said that they are brewing some of their beers (inclusing STS Pils) in open fermenters as well.

The yeast is under pressure due to the large volume of liquid on top of it.
