Febrewary

febrewary-2017

Why a beer celebration in the darkest days of winter? Because Old Man Winter needs a kick in the snowpants, that’s why! Our five-week midwinter celebration of all things craft-brewed and tasty features a brand-new Beau’s beer released every week, our annual International Gruit Day festivities on February 1, tap takeovers & events hosted by our pub and restaurant partners, and tastings & tours on weekends at the brewery, all month long.

Take a bus to the brewery from Ottawa! (Feb 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26)
Take a Brew Donkey Tour bus to the brewery from Ottawa! (Mar 4, Mar 5)

Take a bus to the brewery from Montreal!

Febrewary beers are available in limited quantities! They can be found at the brewery in Vankleek Hill, and participating pubs and restaurants.

Visit the brewery to sample beers, experience a tour, check out our new merchandise, and try our kitchen’s beer-inspired menu! It changes each weekend to match the current beer release.

International Gruit Day, Feb 1:

Since 2013, craft brewers with an interest in making gruit ales have banded together to mark February 1 as International #GruitDay. The day is intended to raise awareness of, and pay homage to, the historical traditions of brewing with botanicals. Check out the complete list of participating breweries and learn more about the day here. Join us at the brewery Wednesday February 1 at 1pm to witness the tapping of the cask, and participate in an International Gruit Day cheers sent ’round the globe via social media!

Week 1, Feb 2:

Brewed for the 5th annual International Gruit Day, Triceratops Tripel features an assortment of organic botanicals including bog myrtle, dried heather flowers and lavender. The Gruit Tripel is a marriage between the centuries-old technique of using herbs, spices and other botanicals to create inventive recipes (known as gruit ales), and the relatively recent Belgian-style tripel, a dense, malt-forward golden ale.

Week 2, Feb 9:

Beau’s Farm Table Series are sessionable beers inspired by tradition and brewed true to a classic style. Dunkel is a malty Bavarian dark lager. This traditional German beer is crisp with a rich, malt-forward taste. The roasted characteristics of a dark beer and the signature clean lager finish are a match made in heaven.

Week 3, Feb 16:

Beau’s has joined forces with Montréal’s Brasserie et Distillerie Oshlag to create Iron Shirt, a pale ale made with Vidal ice-wine grapes, and aged on oak spirals soaked in Oshlag’s very own hopped Vodka. A portion of sales will benefit community organization Je Passe Partout (www.jepassepartout.org). Iron Shirt is the second in a series of beers Beau’s will brew with friends across the nation to honour Ottawa 2017, a year-long celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday

Week 4, Feb 23:

Chase away the winter blahs with a sunshiny taste of California oranges and Peruvian cacao beans! Blood Simple is a chocolate-orange riff on the classic citrus-and-spice character of a Belgian-style witbier, brewed with organic blood orange juice, organic orange peel, and organic cacao. Aromas are of orange citrus and cacao, with flavour marked by spritzy, juicy orange. The body is light and lively, and cacao asserts itself nicely in the finish.

Week 5, Mar 2:

Gruits take inspiration from centuries-old brewing tradition: herbs, spices and other botanicals replace a dominant hop character. Tyrannosaurus Gruit is a red gruit ale made with Québec-grown beets and hibiscus flowers. Organic juniper berries and locally foraged organic white spruce tips add in an enjoyable element of woodsiness and conifer resins.
