A 5.5% ABV Pilsner Brewed with Caraway, Cracked Black Pepper, Kosher Salt And Dry Hopped with Horseradish and Rye Blend


Clifton Park, NY -- Wednesday, December 7, 2016 -- Shmaltz Brewing Company takes the pairing of craft beer with your favorite foods to the next level with the release of their latest collaboration beer: Pastrami Pils (5.5% ABV). With Chanukah around the corner, what better way to kick off the month of December then with a truly collaborative beer between Shmaltz Brewing and one of the East Coast's most beloved beer bars Barcade for a never-attempted-before pastrami inspired beer. Pastrami Pils will be available exclusively at Barcade locations with launch events taking place on the following dates: Jersey City, NJ (Dec. 8), Philadelphia, PA (Dec. 10), New Haven, CT (Dec. 15), Brooklyn, NY (Dec. 16), and New York City (Jan. 14, 2017: National Pastrami Day). Pastrami Pils is available on draft only.

Pastrami Pils summons savory sensations reminiscent of your favorite pastrami sandwich. Shmaltz Head Brewer Richie Saunders brews the beer with caramel, Munich and Pilsner malts to provide light, toasted bread flavors complete with caraway seeds for the complete rye bread experience. To provide the best pastrami flavors, he took a pinch of kosher salt, a dash of pepper, and some smoke to wrap together the best pastrami characters. With no pastrami sandwich complete without fresh horseradish, he had to add that to the beer.

"Look for a clean golden beer with a fluffy white head that will give off the aromas of a fresh, yet cold pastrami sandwich," says Saunders. "The flavor of the beer will be crisp and drinkable with a just a touch of heat from the horseradish while welcoming notes of spice from the caraway. As a perfect meal in a glass, you can have more than one before you feel full!"

Paul Kermizian, CEO and Co-Founder Barcade, adds, "We're very excited to debut our latest collaborative beer, Pastrami Pils. Barcade has been doing this exclusive beer series since 2010 and we've been fortunate enough to partner with many of our favorite breweries on some adventurous and very weird beers. Shmaltz has been brewing really great, inventive styles for years and so they were a perfect fit for us to partner with on something as unusual as this. Although we initially wanted to brew a beer with actual pastrami, they smartly convinced us that they could pull off the flavors of pastrami without actually using it. Everyone is probably better off with this version!"

Jeremy Cowan, Founder and Owner of Shmaltz Brewing, comments, "Pastrami is my birthright. Beer is my passion and 20 years of my life and career. Barcade has been the home of so many great Shmaltz Brewing bashes and casual hangouts -- one of our very favorite craft beer homes! The perfect pairing for our first ever custom recipe at the new brewery. As the good book says, kinda, 'Eat, Drink and be Merry for tomorrow we shall... have to go to work -- and do it all over again.' Lucky us - L'Chaim!"
