VANCOUVER, BC – Steamworks Brewery has announced the release of a new seasonal beer that combines the appearance of a pale golden ale with the flavour of a robust dark stout.
Winter White Stout is described as follows:
Steamworks newest concoction boasts a rich body with roasted espresso and chocolate flavours appropriate for the dark winter months. However, drinkers will be forgiven for being a bit surprised when they actually see the beer, as it pours a beautiful light gold with a dense white head. Steamworks Winter White Stout takes the rich typical stout flavours and body imparted from oats and barley, but without the dark coloured, roasted malts traditionally used in a stout. Instead, these roasted notes come from first aging the beer with whole espresso beans, and then with whole cacao beans. The result is a deliciously unexpected brew perfect for the West Coast Winter.
Steamworks Winter White Stout is available now on tap at the Steamworks brewpub, and in 650 ml bottles at select private liquor stores throughout British Columbia.
