Simple Things now in six packs


One of the best pilsners in B.C. is now available in six-packs. Steel & Oak Brewing Co.’s Simple Things Pilsner (5.0% ABV, 41 IBU) is the first beer the New Westminster brewery is putting into 355mL can six-packs, and will now be available year-round.

The assertively-hopped German-style pilsner is made with Weyermann Barke pilsner malt and a selection of noble hops.

“Crisp, clean, with notes of honey, graham cracker, biscuit, and a refreshing and lengthy bitterness, Simple Things is made the way a beer should be… with water, malt, hops, yeast, and time,” according to Steel & Oak’s press release.

Simple Things Pilsner is available in select Metro Vancouver liquor stores and the brewery to start.
