Brewed For: A Good Steam.

The German equivalent of a steam beer (“Dampf” equals “steam”), Dampfbier use an all-barley malt bill. Whereas a traditional steam beer like a California Common uses a lager yeast, the aforementioned Hefe yeast is featured here. This unique brewing style was once very popular in an isolated region that is the present-day Germany/Czechoslovakia border, mostly because it was about the only beer they could brew there. Surly’s version is also dry-hopped with Glacier hops, nudging a little hoppiness into the mix, along with some orange-tangerine aromatics.
