A Brew Fit for a Queen – Steamworks Brews Commonwealth Ale for Royal Visit

Steamworks Commonwealth AleWill & Kate to be Greeted in Vancouver by Steamworks Brewpub’s Commonwealth Ale

Vancouver B.C. (September 14th, 2016)

In commemoration of Will and Kate’s upcoming visit, Steamworks has brewed their very own royal refreshment. The new Steamworks Commonwealth Alewas brewed in the style of a classic Rye Pale Ale and uses ingredients from a variety of monarch honouring Commonwealth members.

This small batch beer uses select British Malts, lively tropical hops from Australia and New Zealand and of course was brewed in Vancouver, BC with local water and the power of steam. The result is a brew fit for the queen herself; a distinct and balanced ale with classic old-world malt flavour finished with a juicy west coast hop bite.

The commonwealth ale is available for a limited time on tap at Steamworks historic Gastown brewpub.
