There is an interview on the Brewing Network with their brewer where they give a lot of specifics. Combine that with info provided on their website, and you can put together a pretty reasonable recipe.

I believe the beer is 100% Weyerman pils.
Step mash (122 > 145 > 155 > 168) for extremely high attenuation (1.046 to 1.005 = 88% AA = 5.3% ABV).
Wyeast 3470 lager yeast.
Magnum bittering.
Spalter Select mid boil addition.
Saphir dry hop.
40 IBU.
4 SRM.

little late but here is what I brewed:

I used golden promise on top of the pils malt because, well, I had it. I was interested in the silky texture it provides. Used Vienna also to help with some "toasty" flavor from the malt. Initially, this was a huge diacytel butter bomb. I did the D-rest but it was undrinkable for first 2 months. (pitched some fresh yeast, let it sit at 60-65 for a month. Slightly better. Finally just let it sit lagering for another month or 2 and it pretty much cleared up. Clone? By all means no- but to style and comparable, yes. I would change the yeast (I used WY2001) to make it seem a little more crisp and less malt forward to better mimic Pivo. Also- having to let this sit for several months probably diminished a little of the Saphir dry hop punch. However- this turned out to be a really good pils.

Yes seems to be a lot of work for sure.... Mine turned out well and it was a dry batch... Which I was going for. It was more of a Czech style pilzner.... But I'm going to lean towards the German or bohemian style pilz.
