This week is the beginning of the fifth annual edition of Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company’s feBREWary, a month-long winter beer celebration. A different Beau’s beer each week will be available all month long.
The Vankleek Hill brewery will be the only place in Ontario to purchase the new beer releases by the bottle. Each weekend features a special food menu to pair with the feature release, from vodka-cured salmon to lollipop chicken legs, to Mayan chocolate and chili cookies.
More details about Beau’s month-long feBREWary celebrations will continue to be updated at www.beaus.ca/febrewary.
The 2017 feBREWary beer line-up features a selection of four brand-new beers, plus one (Tyrannosaurus Gruit) back by popular demand.
Week 1: Triceratops Tripel, a strong Belgian-style golden ale brewed with a gruit mixture of heather flowers, lavender and bog myrtle – spicy, herbal and fruity, with lasting warmth (9.0%)
Week 2: Farm Table: Dunkel, a German-style dark lager – roasty and rich flavours of mocha and chocolate are paired with the signature clean finish of the lager style (5.7%)
Week 3: Iron Shirt, a pale ale made with Vidal ice wine grapes and aged on oak and vodka – a collaboration with Montréal’s Brasserie & Distillerie Oshlag for Beau’s Ottawa 2017 series (6.8%)
Week 4: Blood Simple, a Belgian-style witbier with characteristic citrus and spice, accented with the addition of organic blood orange juice, orange peel and cacao (5.3%)
Week 5: Tyrannosaurus Gruit, a red herbal ale brewed with Québec-grown beets, hibiscus flowers, juniper berries and locally foraged spruce tips – woodsy and earthy (5.8%)
