Ottawa Oktoberfest 2
The 2014 edition of Beau’s Oktoberfest (October 3-4) is less than a month away and tickets for Saturday are over 80% sold, do you have yours?
There are plenty of non-beer reasons to attend – yummy food from over 24 local vendors, bands like Joel Plaskett Emergency and Tokyo Police Club will be on stage and don’t forget the Midway where you can try to win some awesome Beau’s swag (ring toss anyone?).
Let’s put all that other stuff aside for a moment and focus on the beer-y reasons why you should attend:
Along with The Tom Green Beer, Night•Märzen and Lug•Tread there will be beers from the Oktoberfest Mix Pack (now available at the LCBO) and seven brand new recipes!
With over 40 casks of unfiltered and unpasteurized beer available from breweries across Ontario, you might have a hard time leaving the tent.
The Ottawa homebrewing club, The Members of Barleyment, need your help in deciding a winner for their People's Choice competition. Sample homebrew and decide which one you thought tasted the best.
From cooking demonstrations to cheese pairings to lively debates between all things fermented – the School of Bock is a fun way to learn about the beer in your stein.
And remember this isn’t just a festival it’s a fundraiser with proceeds going to the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Ottawa Riverkeeper, Just Food, Rethink Breast Cancer, Hidden Harvest, the VKH Agricultural Society ..and more!
So what are you waiting for? Grab your lederhosen or dirndl and buy your tickets now!
Tickets are available online for $22.00 each night or $33.00 for a weekend pass. Transportation is available from Ottawa, Montreal and Cornwall to Vankleek Hill for an additional $15.00.
Beau's All Natural Brewing Company has announced the return of their fall seasonal, Night Märzen! The traditional Oktoberfest lager first brewed in 2008 sparked a small harvest celebration at the brewery which has evolved into the annual Vankleek Hill Oktoberfest that’s attended by over 12,000 people.
Night Märzen is a 5.5% ABV Oktoberfest lager that’s described as follows:
The orangey-amber malty beer has just the right amount of hops to balance the Munich malts, and features an ultra-clean finish to complete the package. Märzen is the traditional Oktoberfest style beer, and Beau’s only regularly produced lager.
Night Märzen is available at select LCBO stores, pubs/restaurants, the brewery and Beau’s own home delivery service, BYBO.ca. It will also be one of 13 Beau’s beers available at this year’s Oktoberfest, held October 3-4.
