Festival US Steam Beer 3.5kg

Steam Beer is a highly effervescent beer made by fermenting lager yeasts at warmer ale yeast fermentation temperatures. Historic Steam Beer, popularly associated with San Francisco and the U.S. West Coast, was brewed with lager yeast without the use of true refrigeration. It was an improvised process, originating out of necessity, perhaps as early as the Gold Rush and at least 1860 in Nevada. It was considered a cheap and low-quality beer, as shown by references to it in literature of the 1890s and 1900s.
