Beau’s to offer Lug Tread in cans for first time, at Ottawa 2017 event

Beau’s Brewing Co. will be debuting some new packaging for Lug Tread Lagered Ale in early March, a 355 ml can. A limited run of Lug Tread in cans was produced for Red Bull Crashed Ice, an outdoor sporting event taking place March 4 in downtown Ottawa in conjunction with Ottawa 2017 celebrations. Lug Tread is the official beer and Beau’s the official brewery of Ottawa 2017.

The attractive 355 ml can design features a wrap-around design of the iconic Beau’s tractor. The packaging was done by a mobile canning operation, which came to the Vankleek Hill brewery for the limited production run. A roll out of the 355 ml cans of Lug Tread is planned for this summer in Ontario in LCBO and some grocery chains, as well select summer festivals.

First brewed in 2006, Lug Tread is Beau’s flagship beer. Like all Beau’s beer it is made with local spring water and certified organic, and has won more than 20 awards for brewing excellence. The cans join the 4-packs and 8-packs of 600 ml glass bottles that have been the go-to packaging to date, offering fans of Lug Tread more choice and convenience in enjoying their favourite craft beer.
