Steel & Oak Red Pilsner CansNew Westminster, BC – Steel & Oak Brewing Co. announces the release of its best-selling flagship, Red Pilsner, in 473ml cans.

S&O Red Pilsner is a full-bodied Pils that has a floral aroma accented with notes of lavender and honey. Caramel malts aide in its robust copper colour and impart a slightly sweet taste that finishes clean with a crisp spicy bitterness. It has been a part of the Flagship beer lineup since the brewery opened in 2014.

Steel & Oak co-founder Jorden Foss says, “one of the most persistent requests we get is to put Red Pilsner in cans. We’ve wanted to do it for a while but never had the capacity to do so. This summer we finally received some larger tanks we had been waiting on and are now able to make the adjustment of putting Red Pils in its rightful home, tall cans.”

Red Pilsner accounts for 44% of Steel & Oak’s flagship beer sales and this shift to 4 pack cans will mark the discontinuation of the beer in the 650ml bottled format.

“Red Pilsner is a beer you want to take to the beach, camping, hiking or just have more than one of. This new format will make it more accessible to beer drinkers to enjoy no matter what the setting is,” says Foss.

Red Pilsner is now popping up on Private Liquor Store shelves in Metro Vancouver, Vancouver Island, the Interior and the Kootenays.
