This is Steam Whistle's 6th year rewarding our drinkers with original RETRO OPENER in suitcase 12packs of Steam Whistle Pilsner. You loyalists know it is a little more challenging to open our crimp bottle cap than the standard twisty, but the superior seal it offers makes it worth the trouble when you enjoy that brewery fresh taste in every bottle. You'll find specially marked cases in beer stores across Ontario, Alberta and B.C. while supplies last. We've put thousands of them in cases and hope that you enjoy receiving them.

MAY 2-4 marks the unofficial start of Canadian summer and Barbequing is a big part of that. Since 2006, Steam Whistle has paired with Team Cedar Grilling, Canadian BBQ Grand Champions, with our Pilsner being one of the ingredients in their winning recipes, and for quenching the thirst of the team as they toil in competition. Steve Adams, team leader and passionate griller, shares some of his BBQ Tips and Award-winning recipes.


Smoking option:
Soak your wood chips in Steam Whistle Pilsner, drain and wrap the wood chips in tinfoil; poke the foil pack several times with a fork. Add package to the direct heat side of the BBQ to create smoke.

What is the Difference between Lump and Briquette charcoal?
Lump charcoal is a natural charcoal that burns very hot, fast and clean. Lump is great for grilling. Briquette charcoal is charcoal dust that is compressed together with a cornstarch binder to hold its round shape. Briquettes are more suited for the low and slow indirect cooking method. Team Cedar Grilling uses Maple Leaf Lump Charcoal.

How to light Charcoal The Easy Way:
Lay two sheets of paper towel flat and drizzle olive oil in an 'S' pattern over each square of paper towel. Lightly twist each piece, lay on the charcoal and light with a match.

"I've had 3 Steam Whistle tours... And all 3 tours were different in their own way. But, at the end of the tour everyone is happy. My most memorable part of the tour is the delicious, fresh beer you get out of the line, just a minute old."
Amanda F. (Toronto)

"I had an incredible VIP tour with Bailey about a month ago - amazing experience. It was like being taken around by a close friend"
Chris G. (Toronto)

"I dropped by Steam Whistle on a grey, rainy day but it was all smiles at Steam Whistle. I enjoyed generous Steam Whistle samples while waiting for the tour to start. Phil (tour guide) offered me a pellet of hops and I'm happy to have ate the hops, because today I can pick up the distinct taste in beer. I was really impressed by the tour, the facility, and the staff. Cheers!"
Glen Bilodeau (Mont. St. Hilaire)
