Say bye to Brian’s hair, for charity!

Brian swinging his long hair.

For 7 years the scent of Pantene Pro-V Ultimate Ten shampoo and conditioner has floated throughout our brewery.

Sadly that time is coming to an end.

I’ll let Brian take it from here and let you know why he’s decided to trim off 30 inches of luxurious locks.

– Jorden

“7 Years ago, I started working for Steel & Oak Brewing Co. and started growing my hair. Both changed my life.

Recently, there has been so much negativity in this world. I wanted to do something good and positive while I have the opportunity.  I’ve decided to cut my hair to donate, as well as to raise money for two organizations that are very close to my heart; Wigs for Kids BC, and Diversity in Brewing.

“Diversity in Brewing is a grassroots initiative dedicated to celebrating and supporting diversity in the craft beer industry.”

As a person of Asian descent, I have experienced racism firsthand my whole life. Although there has been a prevalence of sexism/discrimination in beer, there are also many amazing people.

People who make beer out of love, who support other breweries and are always willing to lend a helping hand, who care about and support their communities, who are quick to stand up against negativity and support the good.

It’s the first industry I have been a part of where people have genuinely looked past the colour of my skin, and I am proud to be a part of it.

When I first started working in the beer industry, I was surrounded by a lot of beards. I jokingly (but also factually) said I couldn’t grow a beard so I would grow my hair out instead. My plan was to grow my hair out for 6 months, then cut a sweet mullet. Once my hair started getting longer, I decided to grow it until it was long enough to donate. It ended up being a lot longer than planned (over 30 inches)!

Children with cancer are some of the bravest, most courageous human beings on this planet and I am happy to have this small opportunity to contribute.

I have set up a link to donate directly to Wigs for Kids BC. My goal is to raise $2000 to go alongside my hair donation. You can donate directly HERE.

We have also created a beer called B-Jamz as a fundraiser. Partial proceeds from this can, as well as partial proceeds from all glass sales in our tasting room for the month of December will be donated to the Diversity In Brewing Award – an annual scholarship with Kwantlen Polytechnic University to support BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ brewing students.

Details to come for the cut in January.

Thank you all for all your support and love!

– Brian”

SO5 – Steel & Oak’s Fifth Anniversary

Steel & Oak Fifth Anniversary

*This Blog Post will be updated leading up to SO5 on Sunday July 7th*

SO5 – Steel & Oak’s Fifth Anniversary Party

Here are the details on our upcoming party!

  • Date: Sunday, July 7th
  • Time: 1PM-6PM
  • Location: Behind the Brewery
  • Space: We’re taking over the entire parking lot this year and have occupancy for 1,000. Previous years we’ve only had occupancy for 500 so you should get in quick and without lining up.
  • Line Ups: There will be less of them. We’ll have more token stations, more pouring staff, and you can buy food direct from vendors instead of committing to it beforehand. This should alleviate the “great lineup situation of 2018”. We’re also open for an extra 2 hours so people will likely filter in throughout the day rather than the made rush of previous years.
  • Beer: We will have 3 Beer Stations:
    • Flagship Station: Simple Things Pilsner, Royal City Ale, Red Pilsner, Roselle Wheat Ale, Dark Lager
    • Limited Station: Vibrant Things Tropical Pale, Lumena Saison w/ Timut & Lemon zest, Marzen, Meantime India Pale Ale
    • Anniversary Station: Smoked Hefeweizen, 999 Brett Pilsner, Funf DIPA, Sapperton Sour Red Lager w/ raspberries.
  • Food: We will have 4 food options this year including; Big Day BBQ, Down Low Chicken Shack, Big Shucker Oysters, and Earnest Ice Cream. Both Big Day and Down Low will have vegan options as well.
  • Kids: There will be our famous S&O Lemonade for the kidlets as well as an improved kids area with less sketchy bouncing and more interactive fun.
  • Merch: Also new for this year, our Tasting Room will be delicensed and turned into a SO5 merch and bottle shop. We’ve got some new gear just for the anniversary and some cellared beers that will also be available for purchase.

Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday July 7th from 1-6 for an afternoon of beer, food, music and your neighbours all hanging out at Steel & Oak!

Cheers,

Jorden

Talanoa – S&O Women’s Charity Brew

Women's Brew

On February 3rd, the women of Steel & Oak brewed Talanoa, our second Women’s Charity Brew.

Talanoa is the Fijian word for sharing stories and ideas in order to nurture understanding and build relationships. Those experiencing mental health and wellness challenges often lose relationships, as well as the ability to share their stories without discrimination. In order to change the stigma around mental health, we need to start talking freely and without judgement. The women of Steel & Oak encourage you to share your mental health story.

Our launch event and fundraiser will be taking place on March 7th, at Sapperton District Taphouse from 6:00pm onwards. There will be a fantastic silent auction, raffle prizes, food and beer pairings, and even a Talanoa beer soap to purchase, made by our friends at Peregrine Supply Co.

Last year, the first annual Women’s Charity Brew and Fundraiser raised over $3,500 for our selected charity. This year, we are hoping to raise even more for our chosen non-profit organization: The Kettle Society.

The Kettle Society supports people living with mental illness to lead healthier lives by:
-Providing housing, employment, advocacy and support services
-Raising awareness of mental health issues and breaking down barriers
-Promoting the inclusion of people living with mental illness in all aspects of society

Designed and brewed by the women of Steel & Oak, Talanoa was conditioned on black currant puree and rosemary. Pouring a striking bright red colour from the black currants Talanoa has aromatic notes of fresh gooseberry, passionfruit, and floral qualities of carnations and roses. A sweet earthy taste with a hint of rosemary and pine, Talanoa was fermented with an American Ale yeast so it finishes clean and fruity.

650ml bottles of Talanoa will be available for purchase at the Steel and Oak tasting room and local liquor stores.

Partial proceeds from Talanoa beer sales will be donated to The Kettle Society as well as all proceeds raised during our silent auction, raffle and soap sale.

We hope to see you there!

SOPROUD

We’re super excited to be bringing back a favourite event during New West Pride Week, SOPROUD.

SOPROUD takes place from 12PM – 9PM on Tuesday August 14th in our Tasting Room. We’ll be tapping two special Pride beers for this day only, Pinot Pilsner and Mango Strawberry Quayside Pale Ale, with 100% of the proceeds of glass sales going back to the New West Pride Society.

Leading up to SOPROUD we also have a limited amount of S&O Pride Growlers for sale. $6, with all of the proceeds going to the New West Pride Society as well.

So please swing by our Tasting Room on Tuesday August 14th for SOPROUD and celebrate New West’s diverse and incredible community.

Don’t forget that NW Pride week ends with a huge Street Party on Saturday August 18th from 3PM – 8PM on Columbia Street. More details by clicking here.

Steel & Oak Turns 4

Hey friends!

Save the date as we will be throwing a Birthday Party once again this year.

SO4 will be on Sunday July 8th from 3-6PM and will take place in the parking lot behind our brewery.

For beer, we will have multiple beer stations set up to avoid lineups, including a Simple Things station for a quick crack and go can.

For food, our buddy Pete from Pete’s Meat will be doing up a backyard style BBQ of burgers, smokies, potato salad, and other goodies. Earnest Ice Cream will also be swinging by to help keep you cool.

For the kids, we will be bringing in two bouncy castles, face painting, sidewalk chalk and an S&O Lemonade Co. stand.

For music, Social Medium will be playing a DJ set from the “cage” comprised of vinyl they find in our Tasting Room collection.

We’ve made a bunch of changes this year to the overall flow of the venue in order to get you in and hydrated fast. Hope you can make it and thanks for all your support during our first 4 years!

Oh and keep a lookout for an all new Sapperton Anniversary Sour Lager this year. We’ve decided to give it a new look, and a bit of a new twist for 2018…

S&O Partners With Monarch Place

We are proud to announce our Christmas partnership once again with Monarch Place.

Monarch Place Transition House is one of the programs of W.I.N.G.S. (Women in Need Gaining Strength) Fellowship Ministries. Their mission statement is: “to provide women and children in need the opportunity to gain strength and to live according to their true worth.” They offer shelter and support to women and children fleeing domestic violence.

We recognize the importance of safe environments and alternatives for women and children in need in our community and have pledged to donate $1 from every growler fill of Royal City Ale to Monarch Place throughout the month of December.

December 6th is National Day of Remembrance and Action Against Violence Against Women. Monarch Place fulfills this mandate every single day and Steel & Oak is proud to stand with them.

For more information on Monarch Place and how you can help visit monarch place.org.

Analog: After Dark

It’s back! Analog Pop Up Vinyl Shop is on Saturday, November 18th from 6:30-11:00 pm at the River Market in New West!
Record labels, collectors, and vinyl lovers from across Metro Vancouver will gather in our rad city for an evening of music, beer, food, and of course crate digging.
We first launched Analog with our friends from the Arts Council of New West in the fall of 2016. This 3rd “After Dark” Volume will take place in the Food Hall at River Market, 810 Quayside Drive. Easy access from New West Skytrain Station.
Our last event was a huge success and we’ve managed to build a community of vinyl enthusiasts eager to support local labels, shops and collectors. The vibe in the spring was electric and people loved spending an afternoon browsing for records, while also enjoying some amazing music, good food and beer. I think you’re definitely going to like what we’re doing with the “after dark” concept.
Adding to the evening of vinyl shopping and sipping beer, the Arts Council of New West is collaborating with local electronic music outfit Social Medium to program a lineup of DJs playing a range of hip-hop and electro through to house and techno with live video mixing and visuals from local artist and DJ Mutes Ito.
In addition to popular returning vendors Scrape Records, Music Madhouse & Northern Electric are a handful of collectors, new recruits Highlife Records, and internationally recognized electronic music labels Hybridity Music, Pacific Rhythm and Mood Hut.
Also new for this event is a limited edition beer we’ll be launching called High Fidelity!
Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop hits River Market at 810 Quayside Drive, November 18th 6:30-11pm. You can pre register here.

S&O Satellite Patios this Summer

So Steel & Oak doesn’t have an outdoor patio. I wanted to put one on the roof but our landlord said no. I wanted to put one in the parking lot but the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch said no. I wanted to put one under the overpass but the City said no.

However, I have good news for S&O sun seekers this summer in New West! We will be a part of 3 massive patios (one possibly the biggest in BC but don’t do too much digging on that).

First up is this Saturday at The Paddlewheeler Pub! Our friends down the boardwalk are having a party this weekend with lots of beers from yours truly. The sun should be shining and we’ll be bringing some special brews to help kickoff patio season in New West. The Paddlewheeler will have a fresh sheet just for Saturday so come down, have a couple beers, and try some new eats from this New Westminster staple.

Second is Music By The River. It takes place every Thursday in July at Westminster Pier Park and the best part… the City has decided to license the ENTIRE PARK!!!! This means that you can bring the family down for a picnic, play some volleyball or bocce, buy a Steel & Oak beer or glass of Pacific Breeze wine and enjoy some live buskers and DJs from 5-8pm.

Music By The River is a pilot project put on by the City of New Westminster, The Arts Council of New West, and City to Suburb Realty. Please head down, drink responsibly, and help make this a success. Wouldn’t it be rad if Pier Park was a venue where you could hang out with friends or family and have an adult beverage anytime of the year? How civil!

And the third outdoor patio for Steel & Oak this summer is Fridays on Front! This kicks off July 7th and is every Friday until August 25th on the brand new Front St!

The street will be closed to traffic from 5-8pm on Fridays so that you can walk like a boss down the middle of Front St. enjoying local artisan vendors, live music on the Arts Council Stage, crafts for the kiddos, food from a rotating cast of Food Trucks and of course beer from your favourite New West brewery 😉

Steel & Oak will be pouring out of Vancouver’s first bar truck, The Vagabond Event Bar. This means you’ll be able to get craft beer and a selection of wine from a rad little converted trailer. And just like Music By The River, the WHOLE STREET IS LICENSED!!!! So you will be able to do some window shopping and wander without worrying about the in and out privileges of a traditional beer garden.

So although that rooftop patio may be something that I dream about during my limited amount of sleep at night, at least you’ll be able to enjoy the sun and have a craft beer this summer in New West.

Cheers,

Jorden

Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop Returns

Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop returns on Record Store Day!

It’s back! On Saturday, April 22nd from 2-5pm, indie and electronic record labels from across Metro Vancouver will descend upon New Westminster for a day of live music, beer, food and of course crate digging!

We are super pumped about bringing Analog back with our friends at The Arts Council and after getting volume one under our belt we know what needs to be done to make volume two even more successful.

First off, we’re changing the venue. Since Analog Vol 1.0, Steel & Oak has increased production capability which means the brewery isn’t as open as it once was. It’d be a real squeeze and the likelihood of someone knocking off a tri-clamp, causing beer to pour out at 30 PSI injuring the DJ is high.

So we’ll be popping up at 52 Sixth Street in New Westminster. The rad thing about this venue is that not only is it way closer to the New West Skytrain Station but it’s also surrounded by some awesome businesses including Brick & Mortar, Mila + Paige, Good Omen, as well as Gemini Rising Vintage.

Joining us this year will be indie labels Northern Electric, Scrape, and File Under: Music. New for this volume will be some of the region’s electronic music labels including; Pacific Rhythm, Normals Welcome, Heart to Heart and Hybridity Records. Music Madhouse Records will also be on hand for those in the mood for some classic releases or a rare press or two.

An afternoon of vinyl shopping and sipping craft beer wouldn’t be complete without local music. The Arts Council Stage will feature live performances by Amanda Silvera and Mr. Rust. 

Of course Steel & Oak beer will be available and Flip Top Filipino Fusion Food Truck will be on site for your eating needs.

***New this year!*** We are partnering up with Social Medium as our official after party hosts for an evening of electronic music at Old Crow Coffee. Artists will include, Hargow (Live), DJ Mutes Ito, and Rob Hay.

Social Medium starts at 6PM and is walking distance from the Analog venue. We’ve timed the walk so that you have enough time to pop into a couple establishments on the way for a quick bite or beer.

As always, it’s free to attend but please register here so we know how much beer to bring 😉

See you on the 22nd!

-Jorden

Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop

We’re super excited to have partnered with the Arts Council of New Westminster to bring Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop to the Royal City!

On Sunday, October 23rd from 12-4pm, indie record labels from across Metro Vancouver will descend upon our brewery for a day of live music, beer, food and of course vinyl!

Indie labels La Ti Da Records, Northern Electric, Scrape Records, and New West’s own Bully’s Studios will be set up in the brewery with crates of records showcasing BC’s local talent for visitors to peruse.

Highlife Records and Music Madhouse Records will also be on hand for those in the mood for some classic releases or a rare press or two.

Of course an afternoon of vinyl shopping wouldn’t be complete without local music! On the Arts Council Stage there will be live performances by Sarah Wheeler, 2-Bit Horse with special guest Jimmy Roy, and a DJ set by Dale Davies.

Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop hits Steel & Oak on October 23rd from 12-4pm. No tickets needed, just swing on by!

On Turning 2

This month Steel & Oak turns 2!  For a company as young as ours we’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed many fantastic moments and have been able to cram what feels like 10 years worth of learning into 24 months.

As a 2 year old in a relatively young industry I feel like we now get included in the “veteran” category of local breweries. So with that being said I figured it only makes sense to spit some wisdom at you.

Here are 10 Things We’ve Learned Since Opening a Craft Brewery.

  1. Beer really does cause you to gain weight. However, I always figure for each pound gained we’ve made 10,000 people smile while enjoying one of our beers. So I’m more than happy to buy bigger pants for the greater good of humanity.
  2. The majority of people can’t pronounce Roggen Weizen. Thus, causing them to order it in lower numbers no matter how good you think the beer is.
  3. Making beer is boring to watch, but incredibly fun to drink.
  4. You will never be able to brew enough Red Pilsner.
  5. Beer under 25 PSI of pressure is strong enough to knock you backwards. It is also extremely hard to get under control once it’s begun spraying everywhere.
  6. If you own a brewery, The Drake in Victoria will allow you to dance on their bar.
  7. Everyone loves a Smoked Honey Doppelbock.
  8. You don’t need to make an IPA to thrive in the BC Beer Industry. However, you will be reminded every day by everyone that you should brew one anyways 🙂
  9. A great way to run out of beer fast is to start canning it.
  10. You legally can’t sell stuff that says “Brewing Co.” to kids. However, Steel & Oak Lemonade Co. tees are now available in the Tasting Room.

I can’t tell you how incredible this industry has been to us and how grateful we are to get to brew beer for a living. Making a product that is subjective is always difficult and challenging and I want to raise a glass to all of the other breweries in our community that are making high quality beer and always innovating.

Cheers to 2 wonderful years!

This is what Beer Collaborations actually look like.

This post is long overdue and I’m pretty confident that Tu Meke is actually sold out everywhere (with the exception of the few kegs we saved for Vancouver Craft Beer Week) so I won’t write about how happy we were with how the beer turned out and how you should rush out there to try it.  However, I wanted to write a quick post in response to Stephen Smysnuik’s Westender article titled “This Is What Beer Collaborations Actually Look Like”.

Let me preface this by stating that I like Stephen and what he wrote was on point in regards to the actual brewing process (a lot more boring than you think) and how a collab brew day normally shakes down (also a lot more boring than you think). I’m really here to touch on one part of a sentence in Stephen’s article, “the real action – the collaboration part – happened weeks before,” and to let you know how this whole Tu Meke business started with our friends at Strange Fellows and VCBW. Here we go!

  • Jan 28th, 11:30am: I sit down with Chris & Leah from VCBW where they ask me if S&O would like to host the Annual VCBW Collab Brew and the brew day. I remind them how small we are, they say “that’s what we are going for this year”, I gladly accept!
  • Jan 28th, 11:35am: I sheepishly let our Operations Manager and man bun enthusiast Brian know that we need to cancel a Smoked Hefe brew in order to fit in this VCBW beer. His blood pressure rises and another year is probably shed from his life.
  • Jan 28th, 11:40am: I talk with my business partner Jamie and our Front End Manager Daniel on who we should pick as our co-collaborator. Dan loves his Strange Fellows sweater so we decide to give them a call. Kidding, we love their beer so we decided to give them a call.  Dan does love his SF sweater though…
  • Jan 29th, 9:00am: Iain & Aaron from Strange Fellows gladly accept our invitation to collaborate and an initial meeting is set up.
  • Jan 29th, 9:01am: I tell our brewer Eric to figure out what style he’d like to do.
  • Jan 29th, 9:02am: He says Saison, with Elderberries.
  • Feb 12th, 5:00pm: Eric, Iain and I sit down and talk Saisons at Strange Fellows. Iain is wearing sunglasses because of an eye issue. I have my son Jude and my wife Alissa with me because we’re headed up to Whistler after. Eric has his backpack and a bag of dried Elderberries. Typical sit-down.
  • Feb 12th, 5:30pm: It’s decided that Elderberries aren’t the way to go, we toy with the idea of pomegranate juice but worry about stability.
  • Feb 12th, 5:35pm: Iain mentions that way back in the day a home-brew buddy found these weird Tasmanian Pepperberries and it tasted really interesting. We decide that we want to try it. Eric says let’s use New Zealand hops. Everyone high-fives with the exception of my son Jude who’s only 6 months and can’t put it together yet.
  • Feb 15th, 12:01pm: Eric can’t find Tasmanian Pepperberries anywhere outside of Tasmania.
  • Feb 15th, 4:55pm: Eric finally locates a small bag of Pepperberries in Seattle. Big enough for a small batch pilot brew to test them out.
  • Feb 19th, 8:05am: The pilot brew begins. Everything goes well. We all try a Pepperberry and realize they are sweet up front but taste incredibly spicy on the finish. Our assistant brewer Chardonnay keeps scratching at his tongue. We all poke fun at him and he goes home early.
  • Feb 20th, 10:37am: Eric finally finds a supplier that can get us the amount of Pepperberries needed for the big Collab Day. They are from Tasmania. This beer is by no means “local”.
  • Feb 22nd-Mar 28th: A lot of logistical planning starts over the actual Collab Day. Who’s catering, who’s coming, who’s working, who’s bringing beer, how are we going to fit everyone… While this is happening we are also planning the name, label design, release dates, sales strategy, etc.
  • March 29th, 8:00am: VCBW COLLAB BREW DAY! This could be a post all on its own but basically read Stephen’s article, then add in awesome BBQ from Re Up, lots of beers from your favourite local breweries and about 80 brewers descending on New West to drink, eat and chat.
  • March 29th, 11:00am: Iain and the Strange Fellows gang roll in apologizing for being late.
  • March 29th, 11:30am: The pilot batch of Tu Meke we did a month earlier is put on tap and is enjoyed by all. Eric and Iain sigh with relief as with Collab Brews you often don’t have a lot of time to do smaller batches in order to dial in the recipe. Iain and Eric pose for a photo which is promptly put on our Instagram account.
  • March 29th, 4:30pm: The brew is almost complete and everyone is sitting outside enjoying the sun. Adam Crandall from Moody Ales hasn’t shown up which is weird because that guy loves free beer and BBQ.
  • March 29th, 7:00pm: About 20 people are left as it’s a Tuesday. The folks that are still here either don’t have kids, have Wednesday off, or have forgotten that it’s a Tuesday.
  • March 29th, 11:34pm: Ben Coli from Dageraad is trying to figure out if he can safely ride his bike home to Vancouver. He heads to the Skytrain instead.
  • March 29th, 11:58pm: I crawl into bed happy with how the day turned out. Jude wakes up, I remember that it’s Tuesday.

And a month and a half later here we are! The excitement of VCBW upon us, we have a great cause to support in Music Heals, and of course a beer that we are proud of.

So yes, although boring on the outside, collab brews are a fantastic way to work with people you like and admire, all while throwing a massive party for 80 of your brewery friends.

Cheers to a collaborative industry!
