We’re super excited to announce that our Flagship lineup has officially made the switch to tall cans!
When we first opened our brewery in 2014 650ml bomber bottles were the way to go in craft beer. However, for a brewery that prides itself in making beers you want to drink more than one of we quickly realized that a lot of our Flagship brews would be better suited (and enjoyed easier) in cans.
As a brewery that has grown quite fast in our first few years putting our Flagship beers in cans wasn’t something that we had the capacity to do. To be perfectly honest, a year ago if we had our starting lineup all in cans we wouldn’t have been able to keep up. Thankfully we were able to add a couple big fermentation tanks this summer and are now set up to put Red Pilsner, Dark Lager and Roselle in cans alongside Royal City Ale.
Same beers, new uniforms.
Wearing Red and White: Royal City Ale
Lightly dry-hopped for a gentle floral aroma, this American Blonde Ale is light in colour and medium bodied to suit. A simple mix of classic pale malts paired with a mild bitterness impart this beer with drinkability and easy going flavour components.
Wearing White and Red: Red Pilsner
Pouring a light copper with a thick white head, this full-bodied Pilsner has a floral aroma accented with notes of lavender and honey. The caramel malts that aide in its robust colour impart a slightly sweet taste that finishes clean with a crisp spicy bitterness.
Wearing White and Silver: Roselle Wheat Ale
Hibiscus and rose hips combine with Belgian yeast to create a crisp and refreshing wheat ale packed with floral notes, banana, raspberry and a touch of spice. Roselle Wheat Ale is the newest edition to our Flagship lineup.
Wearing Black and Silver: Dark Lager
Bread crust, chocolate, nuts and toffee emanate from this Munich Dunkel. With a surprisingly light mouth feel, this unfiltered lager has a dominant malt flavour accented by notes of almonds, toast and a touch of caramel.
We hope you enjoy these award winning beers in their new homes.
Just because our Flagships are in cans doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to get a bottle of Steel & Oak. In fact, with the added capacity you’ll likely see even more bottle releases from us in different formats. We’ll continue to brew limited releases in 650ml bomber format and will also be introducing a Brewers Series and Hometown Series, both bottle conditioned and in 500ml bottles.
Thanks for all of the continued support and for all the love you show our beers!
