The Commute Collab

Studio Brewing and Steel & Oak collab logo

When our friends at Studio Brewing decided to open their doors, we started the countdown to our first collab with our new neighbours.
What better way to celebrate the short commute between us than with a home and away collaboration brew? But what to make? A lager, obviously. But what kind?

It so happens that in Germany, Cologne (Köln), home of the Kölsch and Dusseldorf, where Altbier reigns supreme, are just a short commute away from each other; 40 mins down the Autobahn.

And that’s called inspiration: An S&O Kölsch and a Studio Brewing Altbier, just a short Commute away. 

We brewed The Commute Kölsch with Heidelberg Pilsner malt for a crisp, clean taste. We added German nobel hops (Perle, Spalter Select and Hersbrucker) to bring a floral, herbal and pleasingly spicy aroma to the table. Fermented cold with a traditional Kölsch yeast, subtle fruity esters linger on the finish before disappearing before the next sip.

On Sunday October 3rd we will be launching The Commute Kolsch at S&O and Studio will launch The Commute Altbier at their brewery. We encourage you to take the commute between our two breweries as both will have food trucks, beer, music and some little bonus swag items to go with your Commute cans.

At Studio:

  • The Commute Altbier Cans
  • Both beers on tap
  • S&O x Studio Buttons
  • Live Music
  • Taps And Tacos Food Truck

At S&O:

  • The Commute Kolsch Cans
  • Both beers on tap
  • Studio x S&O Stickers
  • Vinyl Always
  • Burgerholic Food Truck

We’ve created a handy map to show you how to either, walk, bike, transit, or drive between Studio and Steel & Oak so that you can commute on Sunday, or any other day of the week!
