Beer Description:
Beau’s is proud to present the most recent evolution in a style of beer we call the Eastern Ontario Gruit. The Bog•Father is an intensified and hopped version of Bog•Water, our popular winter seasonal.

History & Style
In medieval Europe, many herbs and spices were used to flavour and preserve beer. This hop-less style of beer was known as Gruit. Bog myrtle (sweet gale) was one of the most widely used herbs, and in parts of Europe its use was so commonplace used that you could even pay your taxes with it! Unfortunately, after the introduction of the Bavarian Purity Act of 1516, these Gruit ales became nearly extinct. Bog•Father is a modern (and hopped) twist on an ancient ale.

Tasting Notes
Intense flavours and aromatics of raisin, hazelnut, herbal bitters, burnt toast, pisang goreng, cola, bubblegum and licorice are achieved through the alchemy of dark malts, Belgian trappist ale yeast, and bogmyrtle hand-picked from the wilderness.

Food Pairings
Mille Feuille, Holländer Kirsch, Cassoulet, Quail Eggs
