Beaus Mates with Dates


Formerly brewed at Beaus All Natural Brewing Co.
Vankleek Hill, Canada
Style: Fruit Beer | Ratings: 18 | Alcohol: 7.7%
Mates with Dates is a truly experimental offering. The base beer is loosely modeled on an English brown ale. After the first fermenation we added crushed dates, cane sugar, more wort and Trappist Ale yeast to get a second fermantation going.

History & Style

Mates is the second beer in the Beau’s Friendship Series – collaboration beers created with other brewers we know and love. Mates was created in partnership with British brewer Alex Barlow of ALLBEER.

Tasting Notes

The taste of dried fruit and spices are delicate but unmistakable in this luscious brown ale. Fruity to taste, then finishes dry.

Food Pairings

So close to Valentine’s Day, we imagine this beer goes well with holding hands, going to movies theatres, attending opera, and whisperings of sweet nothings. Also, goat cheese.
