The Beer That Shall Not Be Named, ABV 9.9%, 
As yet unreleased from our barrel cellars, The Beer That Shall Not Be Named (TBTSNBN) is a Belgian Strong Ale aged in Pinot Grigio & Sauvignon Blanc barrels for 10 months – TBTSNBN is a cherry-infused version created to launch Phase 3 of our Greener Futures Program. It features predominant tropical fruit aroma and flavour, wine-like character and some almond notes. Followed by alcohol warmth and a dry oaky finish. Join our exclusive beer club, and you’ll get your hands on limited-edition barrel-aged Beau’s beers that are not available to the general public. Club members receive* 10x 600 ml barrel-aged beers a year (January-October), as well as a members-only Greener Futures glass!

These small-batch and rare blends or not-yet-released beers are each aged to varying lengths of time in a specific barrel that imparts flavours of oak and its warming residual alcohol, resulting in a distinctive and truly hand-crafted blend. Even better, funds raised from the Greener Futures Project are invested into measurable sustainability improvements at Beau’s.

Membership is the only way to get access to this award-winning series of barrel-aged beers. Membership makes a unique and unforgettable gift for the craft beer lover in your life – or just treat yourself, all while helping Beau’s move closer to our goal of becoming a totally sustainable brewery.

Kick back and enjoy!

Greener Futures Project beers are typically higher in alcohol, picked up from the aging barrel of choice (rum, tequila, wine, etc.), so we recommend sipping and savouring with a friend.

Le Fine Print: You must be 19 or over to participate. Identification proving Age of Majority must be presented for enrolment and for each pickup of beer. Available to residents of Ontario only.


 

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

 

I don’t live in Vankleek Hill, Ottawa, or Toronto – can I become a member?


Yes! New for Phase III, Greener Futures Project members can have these exclusive beers delivered straight to their homes thanks to our friends at The Brew Box! Click here for more information!

How many beers do I get?

You get 10 different barrel-aged beers (600ml bottles), released on the first Thursday of the month from Jan-Oct. of each calendar year. Your membership in Greener Futures entitles you to one beer per release.

What kind of beers do I get?

Glad you asked! The Greener Futures Project selections are 600 ml bottles of small-batch and rare blends or not-yet-released beers, each aged to varying lengths of time in a specific barrel style – eg. Ice wine, bourbon, rum, etc. While aging for months or even years, the beer takes on some of the character of the barrel it rests in, resulting in a distinctive and truly hand-crafted blend.

How frequently will the beers be released?

We have made Greener Futures 2016 #1 (January’s release) available early (starting Nov. 27, 2015) for new members. From February until October, the other nine beers will be made available on the first Thursday of each month.

Where can I pick up my beer?

  • Beau’s All Natural Brewing
    10 Terry Fox Drive, Vankleek Hill ON K0B 1R0
    1-866-585-BEER
    Open daily 10 am – 6 pm

How long do I have to pick up my beer?

Since your beers are especially reserved for you in 2015, you can pick them up as often as you’d like while the program runs –we’ll keep ‘em safe for you if you can’t pick up every month. However, all 2016 beers must be picked up by October 31, 2016 so we can make room in the fridge for the 2017 program. Seriously. November 1 we drink anything that’s left.

Hey, I’m a Phase 1 Member and I still don’t have all my beers!

No worries, friends, it’s all good. Valued pioneers of Phase 1 (3 years, 30 beers) will continue picking up these new Greener Futures releases under existing memberships until you have received all the beers you are entitled to. When your Phase 1 membership is complete, you are guaranteed an opportunity to purchase a Greener Futures Phase 2 membership for that year, even if memberships have sold out. That’s just how much we love you.

I fear change! Why are memberships annual now, instead of 3 years?

We wanted to make the program easier to afford, and offer more flexibility for our members. You can keep renewing every year if you’d like – in fact, we hope you do.

Can pubs and restaurants get a membership?

You bet! Call 1-866-585-BEER and talk to our sales support team about our licensee program.
