Germany has the oldest brewing culture in the world. A pilsner is actually a lager from the Czech Republic in a town called Plzen. The main difference between a lager and a pilsner is the higher hops in pilsners and the difference in yeast used. That means that a Pilsner is really just a spicier and more hop flavored Lager.
