Stillwater in CANS

Stillwater Classique Postmodern Beer....$10.99 / 6pk cans
Rated 94 on RateBeer overall
Rated 97 on RateBeer in its style"Classique is a cerebral nod to American industrial beers like Natty Boh, whose landmark tower looms over Strumke’s Baltimore gastropub Of Love and Regret. A spinoff of his Premium ale, the refreshing 4.5 percent alcohol brew has Pilsner malt, corn, rice, and historically accurate hops, but none of the original beer’s sourness that comes with Brettanomyces yeast. As a result, Classique more closely resembles the frothy yellow beverage most people think of as “beer.” But Belgian farmhouse ale yeast and Cascade hops add complexity and fruitiness. Classique is earthy with aromas and flavors of grass, bread, and grapefruit." - Washington City Paper
