Fretboard Brewing Company have announced the release of their fall seasonal, Klosterman Rye Bier, in collaboration with Cincinnati’s own Klosterman Baking Company. The 2020 iteration of the Rye Bier will debut on Wednesday, September 9 at Fretboard Brewing’s Blue Ash Tap Room. Distribution to restaurants and retailers throughout greater Cincinnati will begin the following week.
After two successful years collaborating on the Rye Bier, as well as the award-winning Honey Wheat Lager collaboration in 2019, Fretboard Brewing Company felt it was only right to keep the momentum going and reintroduce one of their most anticipated products – the Rye Bier, dubbed by fans as one of the best beers to pair with food.
Klosterman’s Cincinnati Dark Rye is an iconic brand in their bread lineup; a customer favorite for its subtle spice and notes of caraway. In staying true to their slogan, “The Home of Cincy Bräu”, Fretboard saw Klosterman’s rye bread as a perfect opportunity for a German-style rye lager brewed with caraway seed. The result is a wonderfully balanced, medium-bodied, copper-colored brew with an aroma that screams “fall seasonal beer” as soon as you crack a can open. Best enjoyed with cheese, bread, and red meats, Klosterman Rye Bier is the perfect companion for a charcuterie night or a local tailgate.
Along with the beer release, keep an eye open on Fretboard and Klosterman’s social media pages for an accompanying Dark Rye Rueben Bake with Rye Bier Braised Sauerkraut Recipe for pairing with the Rye Bier.
Stay up to date with all things Cincy Weekend!
