The California Common, or Steam Beer, is a unique 100% American style lager. It’s usually brewed with a special strain of lager yeast that works better at warmer temperatures. This method dates back to the late 1800’s in California when refrigeration was a great luxury. The brewers back then had to improvise to cool the beer down, so shallow fermenters were used. So in a way the lager yeast was trained to ferment quicker at warmer temperatures. Today’s examples are light amber to tawny in color, medium bodied with a malty character. Mildly fruity with an assertive hop bitterness.
At White Rabbit, we brew beer for people who appreciate the fact that craft-made beer just tastes better. Our beers are labeled after Tenniel's illustrations from the original Alice in Wonderland. Please enjoy a pint when you’re here and take home a growler for the fridge.
