BC Beer Baron #329 – Steel & Oak Steinbier

At last month’s BC Beer Awards, Mrs. Sip and I made sure to stop by Steel & Oak’s booth, as it’s among our favourite companies. There, we were able to try this very unique limited edition release that surely won’t be around long.

The Steinbier is a collaborative brew combining the talents of Steel & Oak and Sebastian Sauer from Germany’s Freigeist Bierkultur. Jorden of Steel & Oak posted a blog about the collaborative process that bred this delicious beverage.

What is a steinbier, you might be asking? Well, it’s more than simply a beer fit for a stein. In fact, it’s a brew that is mashed in wooden tubs, using hot stones. This typically results in flavours of caramel and soot… mmm, soot!

The 6% ABV, 30 IBUs lager can be found in bomber-sized bottles. As for Freigeist Bierkultur, they “strive to break the creative chains of industrial brewing by reviving and updating Germany’s unique, historical beer styles.”
