History & Style

Beau’s Pro-Am series is a salute to homebrewers, true innovators of our craft: beers designed by amateur brewers, brewed at Beau’s. The Spruce Moose was brewed with Patrick Boisvenue, winner of the 2012 Members of Barleyment Beau’s Oktoberfest Homebrew Competition. No stranger to the Beau’s brewhouse, Patrick also collaborated with Beau’s to create the award-winning Burnt Rock Vanilla Porter.

Tasting Notes

A walk in the woods is subtly suggested in the aroma and flavour of this summer-suited ale. The Spruce Moose showcases a mellow maltiness and moderate hop bitterness, nuanced with additional aromas of citrus including grapefruit.
