Vankleek Hiil, Ontario – Beau’s Brewing Co. will be releasing the Fall Edition of The Beau’s Mix on August 31. The boxed sampler of four 600 ml bottles includes Beau’s flagship, the 20+ award-winning Lug Tread Lagered Ale, as well as three never-before-released beers from the Eastern Ontario craft brewery. Blended spices, berries, and blackstrap molasses are among the more adventurous ingredients featured in the brand-new beers that are part of The Beau’s Mix this fall.
Cranberry Derby is a pale ale that features a classic combination of flavours: cranberry and oats. Organic Canadian cranberries and organic cranberry juice lend a reddish hue, and the aroma is of biscuits, cereal and fruit – but with lively hops and at 6.3 % ABV, Cranberry Derby is no muffin.
The Spice Principle puts to use a bounty of organic ingredients in this ‘spice weiss’ – an imaginative take on the German weissbier style. Coriander, turmeric, cumin, pepper, and ginger create lively flavour in this 5.6% ABV wheat ale. Spritzy with mildly warming heat, the finish is dry and appetizing.
Sergeant Stripes is a 7.9% ABV export stout brewed with blackstrap molasses. It pours opaque black with a tan foam; roast barley, mocha and a touch of molasses are evident in the aroma. The flavour features intense dark roasted malt and a slight fruitiness, while the long warm finish suggests dark chocolate and espresso.
The Beau’s Mix pack will be sold in Ontario starting August 31 at both LCBO and Beer Store locations across the province. It will also be available soon in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba. In Québec, the three new beers from the pack are available Aug. 31, but sold separately.
