Steam Whistle Pilsner

Steam Whistle Pilsner – Our Pilsner is modeled after a style of lager that originated in Plzen (pronounced Pilsnen) Czechoslovakia. Prior to that time, beers were of the ale style made with top-fermenting yeast, and were darker in colour and somewhat hazy. In 1842, an innovative Czech Brewery used a ground-breaking technique of methodical bottom fermenting with a new strain of yeast. The resulting brew, coined ‘Pilsner’, was a refreshing, golden beer with a nice balance of malt body and bitterness, and very drinkable. Nowadays more than half the beer production of the world is modeled after this Pilsner type of lager, some more faithful to this initial recipe than others. Steam Whistle brews our Pilsner true to this original style with only four essential ingredients: malted barley (2 row Pale Malt variety for Pilsners), hops, water and bottom fermenting yeast. We also employ the same decoction method of brewing, where part of the mash is boiled.

Four All Natural Ingredients – We search the globe for the finest ingredients for our Pilsner: Canadian Springs water from Caledon is trucked in by tanker weekly, premium two-row malted barley is delivered via train from Saskatchewan, premium hops are shipped over the ocean from Germany, and our yeast is flown in from a Swiss company. Of course, our fifth ingredient – passion - comes from the heart.

Glass Bottle - We admired the bottles from many 1950s-based Canadian brands of pop and beer, so revived this stylish green glass bottle as our own. With 30% more glass than today’s standard brown bottle, it’s built to last and can almost bounce.

3FG – The three founders – Cam Heaps, Greg Cromwell and Greg Taylor - had all worked together at the Upper Canada Brewing Company in the 1990s before Sleeman Brewery bought it and closed the Toronto facility. The three friends, planning to open their own brewery incorporated as “3 Fired Guys”. While Steam Whistle eventually won out as the brewery name, the feisty spirit of the 3 Fired Guys stayed with them and the 3FG insignia on our bottle is a tribute to their rebellious beginnings.

Bottle Cap – We crown our bottles the old fashion way with a non-twist cap to seal in freshness and ensure a great taste. You’ll need an opener for our beer and then drink right from the bottle. It’s convenient and easy and the smooth bottle top has a great mouth feel!

Date Code – Every bottle of Steam Whistle is individually stamped with the date and time of filling. We recommend that our beer be consumed within three months of this production date, and of course suggest that you store the beer in a cool, dark place to ensure a ‘brewery fresh’ taste.

In March 2000, the first cases of Steam Whistle Pilsner rolled off the bottling line. We have been honoured with many awards over the years, and proudly, our independently-owned brew is now one of the top selling premium brands in Ontario Beer Stores. And, we are growing, now shipping beer to Alberta as part of our focus on being Canada’s Premium Pilsner. We have even filled orders for our Pilsner from Germany – arguably the most highly regarded beer-producing nation in the world.
