We all love the stuff – but what makes beer, beer?
Welcome to part two of the Stone & Wood virtual brewery tour, where our resident Canadian beer geek and Tasting Room manager Jess walks us through the ingredients of beer.
That is, malt, water, hops and yeast, and how these are processed into delicious beer.
This part of the tour is fairly educational, so we recommend popping open a fresh beer and sitting down somewhere quiet where you can soak up Jess’s knowledge, covering the German purity law – aka the Reinheitsgebot –, malting, water types and plenty of beer-science fun facts. Did you know hops are related to cannabis?
After watching this video, you should understand how the quality and treatment of these four ingredients influence the beer you drink – and hey, it might help you better choose between beers at your local pub (when it opens – you’ll be ready).
Grab that beer, take a comfy seat and enjoy another round of beer education and laughs.
