VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing has announced that this year’s edition of the Festivale Altbier summer seasonal is available starting today (May 8th), just in time for the upcoming Victoria Day long weekend.
The 4.7% abv Festivale is described as follows:
Festivale was first brewed for the Ottawa Jazz Festival in 2008, and is something of a cousin to Beau’s flagship beer, Lug Tread. While both beers are lagered ales, Festivale offers up high-intensity, balanced maltiness and more hop presence than Lug Tread. Festivale is based on a rare German style of ale, known as alt, which originates from the northern part of the Rhineland. Caramunich malts give Festivale its colour and a subtle caramel sweetness.
