Steel & Oak Collaborates with Freigeist Bierkultur on 2017 Steinbier Hot Rocks Lager

Steel & Oak Brewing in New Westminster has collaborated with Germany’s Freigeist Bierkultur on a second batch of their Steinbier Lager.

Steinbier which translates to “stone beer” in German was created by pouring the wort over hot granite rocks, instantly bringing it to a boil, causing the malt sugars to caramelize and creating clouds of piping hot hot steam—resulting in a lager with a malt-candy-like finish.

The process for creating this beer was very dangerous and incredibly interesting. You can read the full story here.

Very limited amounts of the beer will begin hitting select private liquor stores this week.
