VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing has announced details of three new beers that will be released next month to mark the brewery’s 10th anniversary.
Batch 5000, the official five-thousandth batch of beer brewed by Beau’s, is described as follows:
A wild Ontario farmhouse ale, made with Ontario wheat, Ontario-grown hops, and fermented with Ontario wild yeast from Escarpment Labs in Guelph. The aroma is tropical, with a backdrop of earthy barnyard and red wine barrel. The flavour impressions are peppery, with mild heat. The finish is tannic and dry, with lingering spice. As noted, it marks Beau’s five-thousandth batch of beer.
Old Skål is a collaboration with Anders Kissmeyer of Kissmeyer Beer with the following notes:
A fruit-infused, barrel-aged and bottle-conditioned oud bruin. Dates, maple syrup, and a residency in pinot noir barrels have added complexity to this collaborative creation, brewed during Beau’s Oktoberfest in 2012 and aged for 40 months. True to style the flavour is tart, with tannic cherry notes and a hint of hazelnut.
Last but not least, Two Tonnes of Fun was brewed last October with the folks from Portland’s Gigantic Brewing, and has the following description:
A 10.5% long-boil American barleywine, made with two tonnes of pale ale malt, and subjected to eight hours of boil time, instead of the typical 60-90 minutes. The result is a full-bodied, luxuriant barleywine that exhibits flavours reminiscent of figgy pudding.
All three anniversary beers will make their debut on July 2nd during anniversary celebrations at the brewery, and will be available in bottles at the Beau’s brewery store while supplies last.
