Steamworks Launches Oatmeal Stout in Bottles-It's Not Just for Breakfast

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2012) - To mark International Stout Day, Steamworks announces the bottle debut of its Oatmeal Stout - possibly the hottest thing to happen to oatmeal since breakfast. For the first time, this silky-smooth beer can be purchased in 650 ml bottles at liquor stores across British Columbia, giving beer a reason to cheer.

"Steamworks is proving that oatmeal doesn't have to be boring, and we're inviting beer lovers from far and wide to go for a roll in our Oatmeal Stout", says Steamworks President, Walter Cosman. Steamworks Oatmeal Stout is brewed with a generous helping of steel-cut oats and lots of black roasted barley. "Our Oatmeal Stout has a warm, roasted nose that succumbs to smooth waves of lingering satisfaction - it's the new breakfast of champions!", exclaims Cosman.

Steamworks has been brewing Oatmeal Stout since its inception, 17 years ago, using a combination of steel-cut and rolled oats to create the velvety-smooth taste for which Steamworks is famous. With Steamworks Oatmeal Stout available in bottles, beer lovers can finally get excited about stocking their cupboards with oatmeal and their fridges with Stout.

As always, Steamworks uses steam-powered brewing, a technology that contributes to Steamworks' distinct flavor advantage.

Steamworks' Oatmeal Stout will be available in BC Government Liquor Stores as well as many private licensed retail stores starting November 13th, allowing beer aficionados province-wide to "bring the brewpub home".

About Steamworks Brewing Company:

In 1995, when the team behind Steamworks Brewing Company first took hold of their historic, Gastown brewpub location, it was discovered that the building had a rare steam heating system - a remnant from forward thinkers of a century past. Inspired, Steamworks ventured forth, experimented and created a one-of-a-kind steam generated brewery; the only one in Canada. Since then, beer aficionados have been migrating to Steamworks brewpub for a taste of their unconventional beers. Now, in 2012, with the launch of Steamworks bottled beers, customers can take the brewpub experience home with them.
