Oak & Stone partners with Big Storm Brewing Co. Launches First House Beer Snowbird Pilsner
Edit: The exclusive Snowbird German Pilsner is now brewed in partnership with BarrieHaus Beer Co.
Sarasota, Fla. – Oak & Stone restaurants throughout west central Florida, known for having a self-pour craft beer wall and elevated tavern style food including artisanal pizzas, launches the brand’s first and only house beer, Oak & Stone Snowbird Pilsner, available year-round at all locations beginning on April 7th, National Beer Day.
The new house beer was brewed in partnership with Big Storm Brewing Co. Snowbird Pilsner is perfectly balanced and a bright golden example of a German-style pilsner. An extended maturation time lends to a smooth and bready malt character complimented by crisp German noble hops. The result is a very approachable medium-light gold beer. The ABV is 4.8 %.
“We’re thrilled to announce Snowbird Pilsner, our first house beer. We’re very pleased with the hops profile and drinkability. Cheers to Big Storm for nailing our flavor,” notes Brett Decklever, co-owner of Oak & Stone.
The new Snowbird Pilsner will be available at all five Oak & Stone locations throughout west central Florida in downtown St. Petersburg, Bradenton, Sarasota and Naples. Snowbird Pilsner can be enjoyed in the restaurants or through Oak & Stone’s Growler program.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Oak & Stone and take great pride in knowing we were selected to brew their year-round house beer, Snowbird Pilsner. Oak & Stone is a great partner of Big Storm, and we look forward to working with their talented team for years to come,” notes Big Storm Brewing Co. Partner / Director of Sales & Marketing, Shannon Brooks.
“This Pilsner was created for Oak & Stone with a small twist. The twist is the use of Perle hops instead of the traditional Saaz hops. Perle hops bring increased floral and spicy notes without an increase in bitterness. The Big Storm Brewing team created an amazing flavor and we’re excited to share it with our guests,” notes Sean Barber, Oak & Stone Craft Beer Specialist.
The new Snowbird Pilsner can be enjoyed on its own or pairs well with any Oak & Stone favorites.
Craft Beer Growlers To-Go are available at all locations, filled with favorite local craft beers (with the exception of the downtown St. Petersburg location, which is not offering growlers To-Go). Guests are encouraged to download the Untappd app for a full listing of craft beers available at Oak & Stone locations. Oak & Stone also provides a Touchless Tap Key for a totally touchless self-pour beer wall experience.
