Beau’s “feBREWary” kicks off January 30th at +225 locations in ON and QC!


The 5th annual midwinter celebration of craft beer returns with five weeks of winter-blah-busting festivities and fun, plus a new beer weekly at participating locations.

Starting the week of January 30, a different Beau’s beer each week will be available all month long. The 2017 feBREWary beer line-up features an inspired selection of four brand-new beers, plus one (Tyrannosaurus Gruit) back by popular demand. Like all Beau’s beers, each is certified organic:

16115069_1347439938611011_7052069946195470404_nWeek 1: Triceratops Tripel, a strong Belgian-style golden ale brewed with a gruit mixture of heather flowers, lavender and bog myrtle –
spicy, herbal and fruity, with lasting warmth 

Week 2: Farm Table, Dunkel, a German-style dark lager – roasty and rich flavours of mocha and chocolate are paired with the signature clean finish of the lager style (5.7%)

Week 3: Iron Shirt, a pale ale made with Vidal ice wine grapes and aged on oak and vodka – a collaboration with Montréal’s Brasserie & Distillerie Oshlag for Beau’s Ottawa 2017 series (6.8%)

Week 4: Blood Simple, a Belgian-style witbier with characteristic citrus and spice, accented with the addition of organic blood orange juice, orange peel and cacao (5.3%)

Week 5: Tyrannosaurus Gruit, a red herbal ale brewed with Québec-grown beets, hibiscus flowers, juniper berries and locally foraged spruce tips – woodsy and earthy (5.8%)

This year Café Nostalgica in Ottawa has set up a Beau’s-themed curling rink on their patio, and will be hosting mini-bonspiels every Thursday to coordinate with each new beer.

feBREWary also takes place at the Vankleek Hill, Ont. brewery each weekend – in Ontario, it’s the only place to purchase the new beer releases by the bottle, making it a hot destination even in the middle of a Canadian winter. Round-trip bus packages from Ottawa through Groupon are available for each weekend of feBREWary here: all-natural- brewing-co- 16 (bus packages from Montréal for 2017 have already sold out). Each weekend features a special food menu to pair with the feature release, from vodka-cured salmon to lollipop chicken legs, to Mayan chocolate and chili cookies.

More details about Beau’s month-long feBREWary celebrations (including where to find the feBREWary beers on tap and by the bottle in Ontario and Québec) will continue to be updated here!
