In 2015, AHA Governing Committee member Drew Beechum gave us his two cents on what it means to him to "transform a beer." For him, it all starts with location, and he lets location inform his ingredients. He might say, "Drew, what's your water source?" or "Drew, what grows in your area?" just to get his brain and palate ticking on the most appropriate beer to brew. In this recipe, he takes your classic Bohemian Pilsner recipe and transforms it into his own version of the style. The modified directions can be found underneath the ingredients for the classic style.

This recipe was originally featured in the March/April 2015 issue of Zymurgy.

The DC Homebrewers Club recently hosted its second annual 2015 Cheery Blossom Competition. The competition name is a nod to the National Cherry Blossom Festival held in Washington, D.C. and attracts nearly 200 entries from around the country.

The overall "Best of Show" beer recipe in the competition was a rather traditional style: a Bohemian Pilsner recipe brewed by Shawn Scott. This beer is crisp, clean and refreshing, with complex maltiness balanced with a rounded bitterness and spicy flavor from Saaz hops.

The beer's inspiration first emerged when Scott visited the Czech Republic in 1994. He fell in love with Pilsner Urquell, and it became one of his favorite styles to brew and consume. So much so that he's made several visits there over the years, each visit inspiring him to experiment with recipe formulation and brewing techniques to match the style. So we ask you, what will be your inspiration to brew a "Best of Show" homebrew recipe?
