Beau's All Natural Brewing Co.'s Beaver River IPA will be released tomorrow (March 3rd) to mark an early start to spring, and for the first time ever, the IPA will be available at select LCBO retail stores in Eastern Ontario, Kingston, and Toronto, joining Beau’s popular flagship brand, Lugtread Lagered Ale.

“Our seasonal program has been designed so that all year we have a second, complementary beer to offer alongside Lugtread,” says Beau’s co-founder, Steve Beauchesne in a press release issued on February 28th. “The seasonals change up every three months, and have been paired to suit the season. We’re very excited to be able to starting getting these beers out to a wider audience starting this spring,” he adds.

As mentioned, it will be available for the first time ever in select LCBO stores and will retail for $4.35 including tax and deposit for the 600ml bottle.

To help celebrate the launch of the IPA Beau's will be hosting an Open House Afternoon at the brewery in Vankleek Hill this Saturday (March 5th).

From the press release:
Saturday March 5, Beau’s will be celebrating the return of Beaver River (and hopefully an early spring!) with an OPEN HOUSE AFTERNOON at the brewery. Brewers will be tapping a naturally carbonated cask of Beaver River for guests to enjoy by the glass. The afternoon will also feature brewery tours, food, and themed activities for adults and families. Limited samples of Beau’s upcoming releases –right out of the aging tank -- will also be available upon request.

The 1.89 L jugs of Beaver River will be available for purchase at the brewery retail store starting Thursday March 3. A list of selected LCBO stores across Ontario that are confirmed to carry the Beaver River spring IPA will also be available soon.
