VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing has announced the release of two new limited edition beers, one brewed in collaboration with a noted beer writer, and the other created with an award winning homebrewer.
The first of the pair is Staghorn, a Belgian-style ale brewed using sumac. Co-created by Jordan St. John, beer columnist for Sun Media. Staghorn is part of the brewery’s Wild Oats Series of one-off beers, and is described as follows:
This Belgian Golden Ale was brewed with pilsner and wheat malts, Belgian Cascade hops, agave nectar, and hand-picked Eastern Ontario staghorn sumac berries. Mingled aromas of spicy cloves and white grapefruit are forward, with flavours of bubblegum and more grapefruit, as well as tart lemon courtesy of the sumac berries. The body is crisp, highly carbonated, and finishes dry.
The other new brew is Doc’s Feet Dubbel, an addition to the Beau’s Pro-Am Series of beers created in collaboration with homebrewers. Developed by Tim Gregory, winner of the 2011 Toronto Beer Week Homebrew Contest, Doc’s Feet has the following description:
Complex, pronounced fruitiness and malt character are present in this Belgian-style brown ale, along with spicy notes and alcohol warmth. Doc (Tim’s cat) – approved!
Both beers were debuted last week during Toronto Beer Week 2012, and are available now in bottles at the brewery and on tap at select locations in Southern Ontario.
