VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing has revealed the line-up of beers that will be included in a special Beau’s Brewery Feature release that will be available at select LCBO locations.
The four beers – Gilgamesh Old Ale, Siduri White Pepper Saision, Sargon Ginger Beer and Ashnan Wheat Wine – have names and labels inspired by the art and mythology of ancient Mesopotamia. Each beer is in a different unique style, and all four have been aged in a different type of wine or spirit barrel.
The following descriptions are provided by the brewery:
Gilgamesh old ale has been aged in rum barrels while resting on its yeast in storage, which contributes to a full-bodied and malty character. Complex fruit esters reminiscent of figs and dates add to the richness and sweetness of this dark, strong wine-like ale.
Siduri is an extra-strong saison beer that has been spiced with white peppercorns and aged in red-grape icewine barrels. The pepper character is definitely present but doesn’t overwhelm this delicate creation; earthy undertones come out in the finish.
Sargon is a ginger beer that has been partially barrel aged in rum barrels. This fun and flavourful twist on an English Ale is our brewers’ interpretation of the classic rum-and-ginger beer combo called a “Dark & Stormy.” Organic ginger contributes the signature aromatics of this spice, along with a snappy heat. An aging in cognac/rum barrels adds the final touches to Sargon.
Ashnan wheat wine displays great depth of character and complexity. It features bold tannic notes that integrate very well with the tropical fruit flavours. Aging in white wine barrels contributes wood and wine character to the noticeable alcohol presence, and enhances a dry finish. A beer with a wine-imposed identity crisis, Ashnan sits comfortably between, offering the best qualities of both.
All four beers are available now at the Beau’s retail store and BYBO delivery service, and will start appearing soon on the shelves at 29 LCBO outlets. All of the beers in the release are priced at $9.85 per 600 ml bottle, and will be available for a very limited time.
