feBREWary 2014
7 Beer Release in 5 Weeks! Collaborative Brews, Fan Favourites, Tap Takeovers and Events at the Brewery!

feBREWary at Pubs & Restaurants...Beau's is proud to announce that more than 70 Pubs & Restaurants will be celebrating feBREWary with Beau's! They'll be debuting a different one-off beer from Beau's every week, all month long!

New This Year: Weekend buses from Ottawa!
Every Saturday we’ll have a special theme, events, and activities for feBREWary at the brewery, and you’ll be able to catch a round-trip bus from Ottawa to join in the fun. Bus details to be announced soon, stay tuned!

Plus, at the brewery we'll have...
