Oast House Brewers launching Dutch-style pale ale
Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – Oast House Brewers will release this week an authentic-style Dutch pale ale – Oost Indie Bier.
The beer was developed in part with beer columnist Dan Grant, to celebrate a recently published story in TAPS The Beer Magazine on beer in The Netherlands.
“The article was inspired by the best road trip of my life, cycling around the lowlands for two weeks in 2013,” says Grant. “Chief among exporters was Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie (United East Indies Company), also known as the Dutch East Indies Company. Its beer had to survive the voyage to what we now know as Indonesia (then called Oost Indies).
Oost Indie Bier launches this Tuesday, March 10, 2015 exclusively at WVRST in Toronto hosted by TAPS Magazine, Dan Grant and Oast House Brewers at 7pm.
