NEW WESTMINSTER, BC – Steel & Oak Brewing has announced the release of a new beer that was months in the making.
We wanted to make a traditional Berliner Weisse. Instead of a quick kettle sour, this beer was co fermented with yeast, lactobacillus and a strain of Brett isolated from a vintage bottle of a traditional German Berliner Weisse. The yeast, Brett and Lacto play well together, neither dominating for your attention. But it’s not a quick process. We let this beer mature in the tank for several months before bottling and then let it sit in the bottle for many more months before deciding that it’s ready to enjoy! It’s dry and refreshing with notes of apple, pear, and peach, finishing with a restrained straw-like funk.
Berliner Weisse is available now exclusively at the Steel & Oak taproom and retail store.
