Beer Description:
Haters Gonna Hate is an ice-concentrated Kölsch– a tribute to the first batch of Lug Tread, which ended up partially frozen due to a faulty chiller. The results were super tasty and the beer won “Best of the Fest” at the Golden Tap Awards. 8 years later we recreated this happy accident with Haters Gonna Hate, a lagered ale that’s ice-concentrated and enhanced with some mildly catty Nelson Sauvin hops. Iced-Kölsch ain’t no Lug Tread – but hey, don’t hate the player, hate the game.
History & Style

For Vankleek Hill Oktoberfest 2014 the Beau’s brewers split up into teams, charged with creating the best recipe for this year’s fest. Team Nine Lives (Beau’s Brewmaster Matthew O’Hara along with Dave Lariviere, Thaila Riden, and our orange tabby brewery cat Orkin) came up with the idea to recreate our very first tasty “accident” of 8 years ago, an ice-concentrated, extra-strong rendition of Lug Tread.
Tasting Notes

Haters Gonna Hate is unfiltered, strong, and has a golden orange hue reminiscent of Orkin herself. Haters Gonna Hate’s aroma suggests funky tropical fruits such as mango or papaya. Also enhanced with some mildly catty Nelson Sauvin hops. A clean malt presence allows for full display of the hop driven fruit flavours and balanced but moderately high bitterness.
