Beau's Holiday Pack

Postby Bytowner » Fri Jul 06, 2012 2:53 pm

I'm looking forward to this release. As an Ottawa homer I've been woefully negligent in sampling Beau's seasonals. Coming to a LCBO near (or probably not) you in November:

Screamin' Beaver Oak-aged DIPA
Farm Table BPA
Patio Saison
Matt's Sleepy Time Imperial Stout

Wow- I have to confess that I have not yet had a beer from Beau's that I was really wild about, but that looks like a pretty solid mix. Would definitely pick at least one up.

The original press release a few weeks ago when the voting opened up said that the expected price was $24 for 4x600 ml. Reasonable, I think, given that they're reviving some of their rarer beers for it.

This 4 pack looks great. A little strange to see the Patio Saison being bottled for a fall 4 pack, but that's what the people voted..

It was all online voting. I know a Saison isn't necessarily a fall beer, but it was mostly nerds voting.

Haven't had any of these. And even though a sasion isn't something for the fall hopefully it's fresh and something enjoyable. Does anyone know if there is a glass going to be in this gift pack? if $24 is the price point as suggested above I wouldn't think but would be a nice bonus.

I would pay $25 in a heart beat for these beers. Although I still have never tried the screaming beaver, but I'm looking forward to it.

I $25 would be worth it for this 4 pack. keep in mind beaus format size, and the time to produce these complex brews. That would be well worth it.

I should, perhaps, amend that I'll be on "pat" leave in November (and well into it) so I'll be hocking my vinyl to get that $25. It'll be worth it though...

The Sleepytime is a great beer, this is definitely a worthwhile pack even at the price.
