Last Days of Summer Lead up to Launch of Beau’s Fall Seasonal NightMarzen and a Halloween beer to LCBO in next few weeks. NightMarzen is an orangey-hued Oktoberfest lager, perfect to pair with the cooler weather of the upcoming shoulder season. This Fall, Beau’s will also introduce a Halloween brew into the LCBO called Weiss-O-Lantern, the white (weiss) beer is spiced and made with hundreds of pounds of pumpkin puree in each batch. Beau’s Weiss-O-Lantern will launch in the LCBO, brewery store, and BYBO, the home delivery service, beginning Thursday September 13.
Beau’s has struggled to keep up with Ottawa’s overwhelming demand for LugTread since the brewery began selling it into the LCBO in 2008, but with the new brewing equipment and 6 additional 28,000 L fermentation tanks in the building, the Beau’s team is looking forward to dramatically increasing production.
For those looking to be the first to sample this year’s Fall NightMarzen (or snap up the last few bottles of Summer beer Festivale), check the LCBO’s searchable database at www.lcbo.com <http://www.lcbo.com/> . The pumpkin beer Weiss-O-Lantern will be available this fall in select LCBO stores, at the brewery retail store, and online via BYBO home delivery, beginning September 13.
