Ottawa 2017 Collaborations: Rheostatics - Parliament of Trees
Autumn Warmer - 6%
Parliament of Trees pours a deep mahogany, and features notes of raisins, plums, fruits and dark malt, with impressions of caramel sweetness. A portion of the pale ale malts were smoked using oak, hickory and cherrywood chips, adding a whiff of campfire smoke to the creation. “A lot of [brewing beer] is dreaming up something delicious, and executing that dream. It’s kind of like art in a way,” explains Rheostatics founding member Dave Bidini, who travelled to the Vankleek Hill craft brewery to brew the beer with the Beau’s team. Parliament of Trees is part of Beau’s Ottawa 2017 series – a portion of proceeds from Parliament of Trees will be donated to Lake Ontario Waterkeeper (www.waterkeeper.ca).
