Steel & Oak Brewing Co.

Steel & Oak Brewing Co. is a staple in New Westminster but we’ve never been to the brewery. It’s located in a bit of an industrial area. The closest thing to it is Pacific Breeze Winery.

We dropped in on a Saturday evening (around 5:15pm) and it was packed. We snagged a table in the back but wow was it ever busy. You go up to the bar to order.

There’s a few board games up by the entrance (Exploding Kittens, cribbage, Connect 4).

Cool that they play vinyl records (The Beatles and ABBA came on while we were there).

They also have merchandise (first time I’ve ever seen a tap handle on the list).

They also have a radler, cider and lemonade option for the kiddies.

Food options are limited (charcuterie board, chicharron, jerky, sausage and snack jars) but we did spot some people that brought in their own snacks.

Nice that that’s allowed.

Flight ($8.00 for 4)
DSC09514We tried the to highway to Helles, quinella (saison with guava and brett), first press coffee stout (cold brew) and Victor barleywine. All the beers are decent but nothing really up our alleyway.

DSC09515

Highway to Helles was slightly nutty with a hint of spice. Quinella smelled like guava but taste was subtle.

DSC09516

First press coffee stout was very coffee-like. Barleywine wasn’t super funky.

S&O beers caters more to the mainstream. Happy that we at least finally tried them out.
