Beer of the Month
Looking for something a little different and having lived in California for 11 years, we decided to try a California Common or 'Steam' beer. These beers were brewed, mainly in San Francisco, as a local answer to the Lagers from the chilly north east United States. Without very cold weather or refrigeration, which was not available at the time, a true lager was impossible. California brewers adapted a recipe that would work in their temperate climate. Refrigeration is available today, but too expensive for a small brewery like ours. So this is a beer in the lager style. 'Real Lager' if you like. The difference between this and a true California Common is that we brewed this to produce a pale golden colour and an ABV of 4.2% . We have trialled it at a couple of our regular pubs and it is going down well so it looks like 'Full Steam Ahead' for this new exciting beer, or is it a lager.
