Katy and Sasha are the contributors for Ottawa Beer Events! They have distinctly different palates and in this segment they go head-to-head tasting Ottawa beer. This week they sample Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company’s Night•Märzen.
I always look forward to Beau’s Night•Märzen. The brilliant copper is a reminder that fall is on the way and that my favourite festival, Beau’s Oktoberfest, is on the horizon. Usually if I have enough money squared away I’ll order a couple of boxes of this fall treat to sustain me for a few months. This year I’ve had to survive on dribs and drabs as I’ve made a promise to myself to concentrate my beer money on homebrewing efforts. Still, this malt forward lager is delightful with flavours of toasted malt, bread and a subtle herbal and grassy hop to keep it in check.
Seek out the stock that’s left of this beer now and enjoy it while sitting in a pile of leaves, carving a pumpkin or something equally fall-y.
I’m sipping on this beer on a cold fall day – the perfect time to dive into this Oktoberfest offering, who’s deep orange color reminds me of the fall leaves that are covering the ground right now.
In line with the style, the aroma is rich with munich malts which are also present in the sweet taste. It has a slight bitter, dry finish due to the 30 IBUs which is a tad higher than normal for the style but still offers a solid medium bodied beer that is great for stein clashing at Oktoberfest celebrations or hunkering down on a cold fall evening.
VersaTile Design is a local Ottawa company specializing in custom printed coasters which are made from premium imported Turkish marble, and are printed using ultra-violet light cured inks in their workshop. The 100% natural stone coasters are backed with a cork pad to protect your furniture.
As part of support local month, an initiative started by Ottawa blog Apartment613 back in 2011, VersaTile has developed a set of 6 coasters, each featuring the logo of a different Ottawa craft brewery. The breweries featured on the coaster include: Beau's All-Natural Brewing, Beyond The Pale Brewing, Ashton Brewing Company, Broadhead Brewing Company, Kichesippi Beer Co. and Big Rig Brewery. There is also an optional custom cut and engraved wooden base made from locally milled wood.
In total, 9 Ottawa businesses have collaborated on this project, making it truly local! This would be a great Christmas gift for the beer enthusiast on your list!
VersaTile is offering these along with many other coasters for sale on their website.
Bowman’s Bar & Grill is a small and cozy, but elevated pub-style restaurant located on Carling Ave. (1170 Carling Ave., across the street from the Royal Ottawa, former location of the “New Debrovnik”.) Their slogan, “Familiar Food Done Well”, could just as easily be, “Local Beer Done Well”, as they pride themselves in serving a variety of outstanding local craft beer.
Bowman's holds an open mic night every Saturday, but this week is super exciting! Chris Rayburn, beer rep for Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company, created a song about Beau’s and sang it during his interview. He will be peforming this song on Saturday September 20, 2014.
This week, in addition to regular offerings of Beau’s Lugtread and the fall seasonal, Night•Märzen, they will be serving Dark Helmut. All Beau’s beer will be discounted by 10%, and $1 from every Beau’s sale will go to “Operation Come Home” (http://operationcomehome.ca/). They will also be raffling off a Beau’s gift basket that includes tickets to Beau’s Oktoberfest.
Assertive IPA with sweet, juicy notes of tangerine, tropical fruit and pine is next up in Beau’s feBREWary tap line up
OTTAWA – (Feb. 11, 2014) This Thursday February 13 will kick off the third week of local craft brewery Beau’s All Natural’s feBREWary celebrations, with a new and boldly hoppy American style India Pale Ale called Mission Accomplished. The beer will be tapped across the province at more than 105 restaurants and pubs, as well as sold in bottles from the brewery.
The 65 IBU (International Bitterness Unit) Mission Accomplished is an American IPA that presents with a bold hop aroma and assertive bitterness. The combination of organic American and New Zealand hops give the beer sweet, juicy notes of tangerine, tropical fruit and pine. Bready malts provide some backbone, but ultimately are no match for the smooth hop bitterness. The American yeast supplies mild, fruity esters that ease back and allow the hops to take their rightful place in the spotlight.
“We’ve had folks asking us for years now to brew a straight up, no nonsense super-hoppy IPA, and feBREWary seemed like the right time to go for it,” explains brewery co-founder Steve Beauchesne. “That kind of led to the beer’s name too, as in ‘Yeah, we did it! Mission accomplished!’” he laughs.
Beau’s will be celebrating this release and Week 3 of feBREWary at the brewery starting Friday Feb 14, by tapping a cask-conditioned version of Mission Accomplished at 2 pm. Festivities continue at Beau’s on Saturday throughout the day with Winter Games challenges for guests, including bottle cap hockey and a stein-hold struggle. There will be free posters of the Mission Accomplished art for the first 100 visitors to the brewery that day, as well as a coupon for a pair of collectible Beau’s wooden coasters upon their next visit to the brewery.
In Toronto, the Cloak and Dagger on College St. will host a Beau’s Tap Takeover for Valentine’s Day called A Brewed with Love Affair, with 10 Beau’s beers on tap and free admission (pay per pint). The event runs over the Valentine’s Day weekend (Feb 14 & 15). In Ottawa Feb. 14-16 Beau’s will be pouring Mission Accomplished alongside a variety of other tasty beer creations at the Winterbrewed Craft Beer Festival, held in the Glebe at the Fifth Avenue Court and Arrow and Loon Pub (www.winterbrewed.com).
Mission Accomplished will be available for sale in 600 ml bottles at the Beau’s brewery retail store, as well as for home delivery in Ottawa through BYBO (www.bybo.ca), for a retail price of $7.85. Throughout the month of feBREWary, Beau’s will be helping BYBO offer a promotional delivery fee of $8 instead of the standard $15 rate.
The feBREWary celebrations continue next week with the launch of Collabrrrewnaut, an espresso-infused pilsner, and food and beer pairings hosted at the brewery with guest chef Bruce Wood. FeBREWary details are available at www.beaus.ca/feBREWary.
Beyond the Pale Brewing Company has confirmed that they'll be bringing some Bigamy (the follow up to their Ball Dropper IPA), Pink Fuzz, Party Animal, Imperial Super Guy and Darkness while Beau's All Natural Brewing Company will have Lug Tread, Hogan's Goat, The Bottle Imp, and Barrel-Aged Burnt Rock!

From the Beau's website (available today!):
An unfiltered wheat beer brewed with sea salt and coriander, Opa’s Gose
is a revival of an ancient beer style that originated in and around the
Saxon capital of Leipzig.
The Gose style takes its name from a river that flows through the town
of Goslar, in Lower Saxony. The saltiness, which typifies the style, is
attributable to the mineral-rich aquifers that supplied the water for
brewhouses in the region.
Opa’s Gose is a tart beer with mild citrusy notes and a unique salty
character. The saltiness of the style is diffused and complemented by a
coriander spice addition.
Availability: Beau's brewery, pubs & restaurants, LCBO & BYBO.
