| Beer of the Week


German-Style Auburn Lager 5.7% ABV

This unfiltered copper lager tastes like you walked right up to our tanks and poured it yourself. It combines satisfying flavours of just-baked bread with fresh grassy hop aromas, and is balanced and clean. Zwickelbiers are not meant for aging, and best served… right now!

History & Style

Beau’s Farm Table Series are sessionable beers brewed true to a classic or emerging style. A German style closely related to kellerbier, zwickelbier literally means beer sampled fresh from the tank cellar at the brewery. Beau’s first released this recipe in 2014 as “Dial Z for Zwickel,” an exclusive creation for Beau’s Oktoberfest. The label references the old name with a screen-print style homage to the many shapes and sizes of telephones over the years.

Tasting Notes

Zwickel pours copper with a slight haze and a dense white foam. The aroma has notes of fresh baked bread crust and a hint of peppery spice. The flavour features deep grainy malt balanced by clean hop bitterness. The finish is elegant and dry.
