Mint-Infused I.P.A. “Embittermint” on tap for Week 2 of Beau’s feBREWary

Vankleek Hill, ON

Boldly hoppy India Pale Ale offers up orangey citrus organic hops balanced by a cooling, refreshing blend of peppermint, spearmint and lemon balm

A new beer from Beau’s Brewery will be tapped beginning Thursday Feb. 9 at more than 200 restaurants and pubs in Ontario and Québec, to launch Week 2 of Beau’s feBREWary, a month-long winter craft beer celebration. Called Embittermint, this 6.7% India Pale Ale gets a refreshing twist from the addition of organic peppermint, spearmint, and lemon balm.

“The aroma is a combination of orangey citrus and muddled mint – it immediately had me thinking mortar-and-pestle mojito,” says Beau’s Brewmaster Matthew O’Hara. Embittermint is medium-bodied, with an explosion of julep-y flavour that is offset by a blend of three mints. The finish, according to O’Hara, is “long-lasting and refreshing.”

Beau’s Chef Bruce has designed a lamb and minted raita food pairing to complement Embittermint, and will be serving it this weekend at the Vankleek Hill brewery. The weekend will also feature samples of cask-conditioned Embittermint, activities and prizes for guests, as well as free tours and samples of the beers on offer. Limited quantities of Embittermint will be available for purchase in 600 ml bottles in the brewery retail shop (as well as select corner stores and supermarkets in Québec), beginning Feb. 9.

FeBREWary 2016 is Beau’s All Natural’s 5th annual month-long beer event designed to “Give Old Man Winter a kick in the snowpants.” Next week’s feBREWary release is Farm Table: Pils (North German Style Pilsner), a traditional Pilsner with the herbal, hoppy characteristics of those brewed in Northern Germany. A full list of participating feBREWary restaurants in Ontario and Québec and details on all the upcoming feBREWary beers are also available online at www.beaus.ca/feBREWary.

Kickstater Gradute, SYNEK, Announces New Innovations

St. Louis, MO

After raising $650,000 on Kickstarter and a subsequent $3.1 million in initial funding, SYNEK (“sin-eck”) announces three major product innovations that will further expand the quality and variety of beer to its customers. 

“We’re not a one trick pony,” said Steve Young, SYNEK founder and CEO. “Delivering the last preorder is just the beginning of our quest to make great beer available to all.”

While hundreds of breweries already partnered, introducing the Growler Adapter will expedite their vision of perfect access by tapping into the industry standard. For the first time, this expands SYNEK’s capabilities to the increasingly popular nitrogen infused beers.

To optimize for the strong homebrewing community, the newly redesigned SYNEK cartridges now tout a 50 percent higher pressure rating. The reinforced design allows homebrewers an easier, safer and cleaner way to package and pour their own brews. 

A vast majority of the beer industry currently uses vented faucets. While common, these faucets introduce beer killing oxygen with every pour. By creating a simple pliable sling, these taps can be upgraded to provide higher quality and longer lasting beer whether enjoyed in a pint glass, growler or SYNEK cartridge.

“We’re not reinventing the wheel, just beer,” Young said.

All of these innovations are currently being tested by select breweries and will be available mass market in Spring 2016.

Barrel Reserve's Irish Red Lagered Ale Release THIS WEEKEND!

St. Thomas, ON

Railway City Brewing Co. presents their February Barrel Reserve: Irish Red Lagered Ale! Whether you're spoiling your loved one for Valentines Day or reveling in your single-swagger, this February brew is for you!

The medium-bodied barrel-aged ale pours a mix of dark apricot and auburn hues into your glass. To the nose, aromas of dates, butterscotch, and hints of graham cracker sweetly tease the senses. The taste of butterscotch approaches on the forefront of the palate, only to fall quickly into the taste of red apple and dried fruits. The brew ends with a tart finish deriving from the tannins of the barrels. You are then left with a refreshing watermelon aftertaste that lingers on your tongue.

This Irish Red Lagered Ale pairs well with Irish stews, loaded potato skins, or root vegetables such as parsnip. Whatever you choose, this Irish Red Lagered Ale is a wonderful way to celebrate Valentines day and the winter weather!
