VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing has announced that this year’s edition of the Festivale Altbier summer seasonal is set for release this week.
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.
Festivale will be available in the Beau’s retail store, BYBO delivery service, and in select LCBO outlets across Ontario, retailing for $4.55 per 600 ml bottle. It will also be served at this year’s Ottawa Jazz Festival alongside Lug Tread and an American brown ale called After Dark.
