TORONTO, ON – The latest seasonal beer from Mill Street Brewery was released this past week at a trade and media launch at the Victory Cafe in Toronto.
Mill Street Schleimhammer Roggenbier is a traditional German rye beer, a style that is rarely seen in North America. Brewmaster Joel Manning described it to the Great Canadian Pubs & Beer blog:
The Roggenbier has 30% rye malt, 20% wheat malt and 50% barley malt. Of the barley malt it has pale 2-row, caramel and chocolate malt. The hops are German Magnum variety and it is fermented with a German Hefeweizen yeast. What I like the best about the Roggenbier is that for a beer with as much complexity as this, it is still “table beer” and has a simplicity that makes it sessionable. Good 15th century peasant fare!
Schleimhammer Roggenbier is available now at the Mill Street Brewpub in Toronto’s Distillery District and in other select bars and pubs in Toronto.
