Beer of the Month: Beau’s Lug Tread

As we hold onto the last rays of summer, there’s nothing better than a easy drinking lager-style beer.

Beau’s year-round flagship beer–Lug Tread– is a certified organic lagered ale. A hybrid style, Lug Tread is top-fermented (like an ale) and then cold-aged (like a lager), giving it light ale notes complemented by a lager-like crispness. Golden-hued and finely balanced, this tasty golden ale has won more than 20 awards for brewing excellence since 2006.

Lug Tread pours a brilliantly clear straw gold, with rocky white foam. A Graham cracker malt character mingles with notes of freshly cut hay and a subtle touch of apple. Sweet, grainy malt is followed by balanced hop bitterness, and the finish is clean and dry.

As mentioned, Lug Tread is no stranger to award wins, having picked up multiple awards at the Canadian Brewing Awards, National Capital Craft Beer Festival and Golden Tap Awards. It’s a staple for Beau’s and one of the beers that has helped the brand solidify itself as one of the best breweries in Ontario.

Beau’s can be found year-round, and is in most private liquor and beer stores across Canada.
