Beau’s Announces Release of Oktoberfest Lager “Night Märzen” and Spruce Beer “The Spruce Moose”

Ottawa, ON

Fall Seasonal returns to LCBO and latest Pro-Am Series Collaboration now available  

Beau’s All Natural Brewing welcomes the return of their Fall Seasonal beer Night Märzen. Beginning today the Oktoberfest style lager will be available at select LCBO locations throughout Ontario. Last Thursday, Beau’s also released the latest beer in their Pro-Am Series called The Spruce Moose. The American Pale Ale spruce beer is available while quantities last at the brewery and through Beau’s Ottawa-based home delivery service BYBO.

Night Märzen is an orange-copper coloured, Oktoberfest Lager. Night Märzen is based on a traditional German style that would be lagered in cellars through the summer and then released for Oktoberfest celebrations in the Fall. Keeping with tradition, Night Märzen is available just in time for Beau’s Oktoberfest: the brewery’s 5th  annual signature fundraising event taking place in Vankleek Hill, Ontario on October 4th and 5th.

The Fall Seasonal is Beau’s only regularly produced lager and features a bready malt backbone that is complemented by a firm hop presence. “Our Night Märzen is essentially a throwback version of the Märzen style. It features a greater intensity of flavour, as well as a deeper and darker malt character than some paler contemporary versions of the style,” explains Beau’s brewmaster Matthew O’Hara. The Oktoberfest Lager pairs well with traditional Oktoberfest fare such as pretzels with mustard.

The Spruce Moose is the 8th release in the Beau’s Pro-Am Series; beer recipes developed by amateur brewers, and then scaled up for a full-batch at Beau’s. The American Pale Ale is a 6.2% deep copper-coloured beer featuring an addition of more than 60 kilograms of spruce tips hand-harvested from the wild. It has a clean, mellow malt character that is complemented by zesty, piney hops. The Spruce Moose was brewed with Patrick Boisvenue, winner of the 2012 Members of Barleyment Beau’s Oktoberfest Homebrew Competition and collaborator to the award-winning Burnt Rock Vanilla Porter.

Presented in Beau’s signature 600 ml bottle, Night Märzen is available beginning today at select LCBO locations, select restaurants and pubs, the brewery retail store, and through the Ottawa-based home delivery service BYBO ( for a retail price of $4.35. The Spruce Moose is available in 600 ml bottles for a retail price of $7.85 and can be purchased at the brewery retail store and through the Ottawa-based home delivery service BYBO.
