Blue Ash's Fretboard Brewing Co. Releases Seasonal Klosterman Rye Bier Collab with Klosterman Baking Co.

The German-style rye lager features notes of subtle spice and caraway to create what Fretboard calls a "wonderfully balanced, medium-bodied, copper-colored brew with an aroma that screams 'fall seasonal beer.'"

Blue Ash's Fretboard Brewing Company has partnered with longstanding local baker Klosterman Baking Co. to release a special seasonal collaboration brew: Klosterman Rye Bier. 

The fall-themed beer — which has zero pumpkin (a happy reality for pumpkin-flavor haters in this season of the gourd) — will hit the brewery taps on Sept. 9 and head to partner restaurants and retailers the following week.

"After two successful years collaborating on the Rye Bier, as well as the award-winning Honey Wheat Lager collaboration in 2019, it was only right to keep the momentum going and reintroduce one of Fretboard’s most anticipated products — the Rye Bier, dubbed by fans as one of the best beers to pair with food," says a release from the brewery.

The German-style rye lager features notes of subtle spice and caraway to create what Fretboard calls a "wonderfully balanced, medium-bodied, copper-colored brew with an aroma that screams 'fall seasonal beer.'"

Fretboard and Klosterman will also be releasing a Dark Rye Rueben Bake with Rye Bier-Braised Sauerkraut recipe on social media to pair with the brew.

The Klosterman Rye Bier hits the taps at Fretboard Brewing Company, 5800 Creek Road, Blue on Sept. 9. More info: fretboardbrewing.com. And get more info about the 125-year Klosterman Baking Co. at klostermanbakery.com.
