New brewing venture releases first full-time beer to hit LCBO shelves today
OTTAWA – B-Side Brewing Label is launching its first brand today, a Nordic Pale Ale from Denmark’s Kissmeyer Beer. Available on a full-time basis, Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale is the first beer from the “B-Side Brewing Label,” a new brewing venture from Beau’s All Natural Brewing that will see internationally renowned beers produced, sold, and delivered under the umbrella of the B-Side Brewing Label.
Anders Kissmeyer of Kissmeyer Beer in Denmark is the first brewer to “sign” to the B-Side Brewing Label. His Nordic Pale Ale is an imaginative interpretation of the Pale Ale style and features a unique northern-inspired medley of ingredients. Sweet gale, yarrow, dried heather flowers, rose hips, and cranberries comprise its balanced fruit-and-herb bouquet, while a maple syrup addition rounds out the complex character of the beer. The Nordic Pale Ale features intricate herbal nuance, moderate hop presence, pleasant dryness, and a crisp finish.
“B-Side and Kissmeyer Beer represent a whole new way to bring some of the best beer in the world to Ontario, while offering the freshness and excitement of a local craft beer,” commented Beau’s co-founder Steve Beauchesne.
Presented in a signature B-Side Brewing Label 600 ml bottle, Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale is available at the LCBO for a retail price of $4.85. The Nordic Pale Ale is also available at select restaurants and pubs, the Beau’s retail store at the brewery, and through the Ottawa-based home delivery service BYBO (www.bybo.ca). More information about the new B-Side Brewing Label will be released over the coming months at www.b-side.ca.
