|Creemore Springs Brewery is proud to announce the limited release of its German inspired Kellerbier (Cellar Beer). This extraordinarily hoppy beer is made so fresh that there are only 400 hectolitres (80,000 - 473 ml cans) being produced, approximately two months worth of inventory. Available July 19th at select LCBO stores in the GTA and surrounding area, Kellerbier will be the summer beer of choice for fans of traditional beer styles or those seeking a unique summer thirst quencher.|
“The folks at Creemore are proud to share our love of traditional brewing with our loyal and valued customers”, says Karen Gaudino, Director of Sales and Marketing. “We are confident this unfiltered beer with its incredible hop kick and citrus finish will not disappoint Ontario’s discerning foodies and beer drinkers.”
When traveling in Bamberg Germany, Brewmaster Gordon Fuller happened across a unique style of beer know as Kellerbier (Cellar Beer). After much research and testing, Gordon and his team set out to create their own style of Kellerbier created in the time-honoured tradition as it was in Bamberg. Due to the remarkable freshness of this beer, it is brewed primarily for local consumption, a philosophy of beer making that fits perfectly with that of one of Ontario’s finest craft brewers Creemore Springs.
Kellerbier dates back to the middle ages in small artesian towns in rural Germany. This unusually hoppy beer comes right from the cellar and is naturally cloudy due to the vitamin rich yeast still present in the beer. Kellerbier is lower in carbonation and abundant with hop aroma and flavour. Small batch brewed, this unique beer uses only four natural ingredients and is then packaged unfiltered. Often served as an aperitif before dinner to stimulate the appetite, this surprisingly thirst quenching Kellerbier has a citrus and spicy finish left by the unfiltered yeast and a lavish malt backbone.
