Paper Chase

Birchwood Ale • 5.6% •

Paper Chase is a certified organic copper-coloured ale, brewed with locally foraged birch bark and aged on roasted Canadian birchwood. Just-lit campfires, caramel and tea-like tannins intermingle in this decidedly delicious (and deciduous) ale. It’s part of Beau’s Wild Oats Series of innovative beer recipes that offer bold flavours and new adventures for the craft beer drinker.


History & Style

We’ve taken Canadian birch and its strong-yet-pliable bark beyond the iconic canoe with the creation of Paper Chase. Working with birch in two ways brings out complexity of aroma and flavour. The birch bark is hand-harvested and used as an ingredient, and then the beer ages for a time on roasted birchwood. On the label, two paper airplanes chase each other in a mid-century modern graphic style.

Tasting Notes

Paper Chase pours copper with a light haze and white foam. The aroma consists of caramel, dried fruit and baking spice. The birch asserts itself in the flavour offering firm tannins and impressions of sandalwood. The finish is long with lingering caramel sweetness.
