Beau’s Brewery Is Making History For Ottawa 2017!

By on June 13, 2016

What a HUGE milestone for Beau’s Brewing Company, as it was announced that they will be the Official Beer Partner of Ottawa 2017. Their Lug-Tread will be the official beer for Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations in the nation’s capital. Cheers to that!!

On the cusp of celebrating their 10th anniversary on July 1st, Beau’s Brewing Company, Canada’s largest craft producer of organic beer, is revelling with the amazing news that was revealed this past week at a press conference at the Datsun restaurant.

The news that marked a significant milestone. The Ottawa 2017 Bureau and Mayor Jim Watson, in collaboration with lead partner CIBC, made the official announcement that Beau’s Lug-Tread will be the official beer for Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

The Ottawa 2017 Bureau has our city really excited with all the over-the-top activities that will be taking place to celebrate the 150th anniversary of our beautiful nation. And what a better way to celebrate than to have a local company headlining the libation portion?!

It was also mentioned that Beau’s will collaborate with partners across Canada, including Big Rig and Kichesippi craft breweries, to create a special beer each month in honour of Canada’s sesquicentennial.

We wanted to share this sponsorship with lots of people – Beau’s Brewery co-founder, Steve Beauchesne

“We’re very pleased to have a local success story like Beau’s Brewing Company partner with Ottawa 2017,” said Mayor Watson. “As we welcome an influx of visitors to Ottawa for our country’s 150th birthday celebrations, it’s a great opportunity to invite them to discover and delight in the many flavours of the capital region.”

“It’s an exciting time for Beau’s as we embark on a second decade of making excellent, flavourful beer, while staying true to our roots as a strong, independent, employee-owned and family-run operation,” said Steve Beauchesne, CEO of Beau’s Brewing Company. “This partnership will enable us to share our passion for beer-making with Canadians and contribute to the success of Canada’s birthday celebrations and the growth that it will bring to the region.”

After ten years of brewing excellence, they have become part of Ottawa’s identity and we are proud to partner with them to highlight this unique taste of the nation’s capital to residents and visitors alike. – Guy Laflamme, Executive Director of the Ottawa 2017 Bureau

The Beer

Beau’s Lug Tread, official beer of Ottawa 2017.

The Lug-Tread Lagered Ale is Beau’s award winning, flagship beer. “This tasty golden ale is top-fermented (like an ale) and then cold-aged (like a lager) for a lengthy period, giving it light ale notes complemented by a lager-like crispness. Like all Beau’s beer, Lug-Tread is brewed with certified organic malts and hops, and local spring water. Lug-Tread is multi-award-winning, and versatile enough to suit all seasons and every occasion.”

Ottawa 2017 will be an exciting time for Canadians all over and it’s with these types of announcements that makes us wonder with anticipation and excitement what other news will we be hearing in the months to come.

Cheers to supporting local companies such as Beau’s and being proud that they will represent Canada on such a huge platform!

  • Had to stop by @ottawapoutinefest to discover some new flavours. And what flavours I had @mr.panino with their gnocchi poutines! Poutine lovers will devour their signature dish (gnocchi, gravy, cheese curds with spicy Italian sausage😍😋) They also have the ‘world poutine’ (marinara sauce, cheese curds, sautéed spicy Italian sausage, sweet peppers, Parmesan cheese, mushrooms, onions and kalamata olives) The festival continues till 6pm Sunday. #foodies #foodporn #foodphotography #foodgasm #instafood #poutine #ottawapoutinefest #nomnom #supportlocal #supportlocalbusiness #ottawaeats #foodblogger #foodtruck #ottawafoodtruck

  • The many courses I had @cabaneaupieddecochon This year’s gluttony fest was inspired by Morocco. Everything from a foie gras cake, puff omelette with cumin, a delicious piglet stuffed 3 ways, a salmon ‘kefte’ dish, sausage stuffed calamari, some tagine dishes and ofcourse some decadently rich desserts. Dishes were uniquely presented and most of them had a foie gras component to them😋 Till next year!! #foodie #foodporn #foodpornshare #foodblogger #nomnom #instafood #gluttony #chefmartinpicard #mapleseason #sugarshack #overindulgence #foodcoma #travelblogger #bucketlist #foodphotography #foodexplorer #foodlover #somuchfood #somuchfun
