Oh happy day - update on yeast allergy

All,

The advice from some of the fine gentlemen on this forum prompted me to seek additional information. Although I truely like some of the more full bodied beers, Rolling Rock is my "everyday" beer of choice.

I sent an e-mail to Rolling Rock asking about their filtration and here's the response I received:


Dear Kevin,



Thank you for taking the time to e-mail Rolling Rock. It’s great to hear of your interest in our beer, and we’d be happy to provide some information.



With the exception of draught beer, Rolling Rock and Rock Green Light are filtered to achieve a brilliant clarity ideal for a freshly poured glass of beer. During filtration, yeast and other unstable protein materials are removed from beer. Detection of live yeast cells after filtration is possible, but levels would be considered “trace.” In addition, all packaged beer (in bottles and cans) is pasteurized, so any remaining live yeast and other microorganisms are thermally killed.



Because we take steps to remove yeast particles from Rolling Rock, we do not routinely analyze the finished product for remaining yeast content. Should you have any health concerns, we encourage you to discuss the above information with your physician.



Brewed using the finest pale barley malts, the perfect blend of hops, rice, corn, and water, Rolling Rock is a premium extra pale lager with a rich history and personality.



Again, Kevin, thank you for contacting Rolling Rock. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or comments, and we hope you are able to raise a green bottle again soon!



Erin

Your Friend at Rolling Rock
It's been well over a month since I last enjoyed a cold beer. I live in a dry county, so tomorrow after work, I'll be making a run for the border for a 12 pack of my favorite everyday beer.

Thanks guys.

Rolling Rock is a clear, American lager that would normally not be the first choice of a microbrew/European import fan such as myself during my beer drinking days. However, long before those days, I enjoyed many a Rolling Rock during times hanging out with my second wife's family. That was the beer of choice at Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.

All I can say is, many years later, I continued to enjoy the occasional Rolling Rock. It's a pleasant tasting, tangy, fresh, bright, delicious beer for a typical American lager. Go for it Kevin, and keep us posted. Can't go wrong with a Rolling Rock.

Yeah Bloof,

It's not a Bavarian Bock, but it ain't a bad way to slum it.

Not at all. If you put Rolling Rock next to a Bud, Miller, and a whole lot of the other beers of that ilk out there at a Super Bowl party, if I could still drink beer, and wanted one like that, I'd choose the Rolling Rock.

I would also pick Rolling Rock over the big three bland pilsner style beers, because it does have a unique flavor.

Interestingly, the flavor is considered a flaw in brewing (diacetyl formation which tastes/smells like buttery popcorn but also provides a slippery mouthfeel). Rolling Rock (and some California Chardonneys) purposely ferment for this and are offered as the classic example in beer tasting/judging.

I'd pick the Bud...

However since I got into homebrewing I really don't drink too many commercial beers.

Good move, can't go wrong with skillful home brewing. I've tasted some fine, fine home brews, barleywines, bocks, some others, nice stuff.
