Slow Boat Brewery & Home Plate BBQ Announce Collaborative Brew
Beijing, China, January, 3 2013 – Slow Boat Brewery in collaboration with Home Plate BBQ introduce The Cannon Rauchbier, brewed with a combination of apple wood smoked malt and heavy helping of chocolate specialty grains, on tap only at Home Plate BBQ’s Sanlitun and Sanyuan Qiao locations.
Rauchbier is a type of beer with a distinctive smoke flavor imparted by using malted barley typically dried over an open flame. The Rauchbiers of Germany in particular are the best-known of the smoked beers. “This is a style of beer that we never had a chance to produce before because we didn’t have the ability to smoke the ingredients”, said Daniel Hebert, Slow Boat’s brewer. “When Adam Murray showed us the new smokers he imported from the USA, we knew that it would be possible to begin experimenting on new smoked porter recipes.”
“The Cannon is a collaboration between Slow Boat Brewery and Home Plate BBQ,” says Chandler Jurinka. “Adam Murray used his 1600 lb Lang smoker to smoke 100kg of Slow Boat’s grains for 4 hours.” The resulting beer, called “The Cannon”, is dark in color, light in body and Apple wood smoky in aroma. Toasted and roasted notes blend with the smoked malt and a crisp finish. Chinook hops were used for bittering and Willamette hops for aroma. (ABV 4.5%, IBU 25, SRM 32)
The point of this was to make a beer that celebrated the opening of Home Plate’s flagship location in Sanlitun and pair well with Home Plate’s menu items. “The Cannon pairs well with the ribs, but it also goes well with just about anything else on the menu,” said Chandler Jurinka.
The Cannon Rauchbier was specifically made for Home Plate BBQ and will only be sold in their two Beijing locations.
Slow Boat Brewery is a family-run craft beer brewery based and run in Beijing. Founded in 2011 by two Americans living in China, Slow Boat beer is hand-crafted in the American craft beer tradition to ensure full-flavored beers. Slow Boat has a rotating selection of over 17 beers to satisfy every palette – to include two in bottles – none of which contain any chemicals, additives, or preservatives. Slow Boat distributes beer to hotels, restaurants and bars in Beijing and Shanghai, and has a Taproom at Dongsibatiao.
