NEW WESTMINSTER, BC – Steel & Oak Brewing has announced details of the latest release in its Brewers Series of bottle conditioned beers that feature “some really unique styles on a small scale”, and serve as “a vehicle for our brewers to experiment with new ingredients”.
Khlib (5.1% abv) was inspired by kvass, a traditional Eastern European beer style made with rye bread. It’s described as follows:
Cascading loaves of beautiful rye, buckwheat, and whole wheat sourdough bread from Solodko Bakery in New West went into the mash of this Kvass inspired beer. Khlib is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and has notes of toast, spice and fruit.
Khlib is launching today in a limited run of 500 ml bottles at the Steel & Oak tasting room and store, and will be available soon at select private liquor stores around Metro Vancouver.
