VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing is kicking of the fourth week of this year’s edition of FeBREWary – a month of beer launches and events from the brewery – with the release today (February 20th) of the latest installment in the brewery’s Wild Oats series of experimental and one-off beers.
Collabrrrewnaut is an espresso-infused Pilsner created in collaboration with Ottawa’s Bridgehead Coffee. This unique hybrid is described as follows:
Collabrrrewnaut has an herbal, spicy noble hop aroma, with a subtle yet ever-present espresso note that lingers like the scent of coffee in a busy Czech café. The beer possesses a mild bitterness, with a clean dry finish. Restrained nuances courtesy of the coffee suggest dried figs, nutty richness and chocolate as they intermingle with the classic Pilsner style.
A cask-conditioned version of Collabrrrewnaut will be tapped at Beau’s tomorrow (Friday February 21st) at 2:00 PM, and a full-scale “Local Food & Beer” themed launch event for the beer featuring giveaways, samples, and food pairings by chef Bruce Wood will be happening at the brewery on Saturday February 22nd.
