Beau’s Sargon Ginger Beer 600 ml

Sargon-1

Sargon is a ginger beer that has been partially barrel aged in rum barrels. This fun and flavourful twist on an English Ale is our brewers’ interpretation of the classic rum-and-ginger beer combo called a “Dark & Stormy.” Organic ginger contributes the signature aromatics of this spice, along with a snappy heat. An aging in cognac/rum barrels adds the final touches to Sargon.

Sargon-2

Beau’s LCBO Barrel Aged Beer Feature for spring 2014 is inspired by the art and mythology of ancient Mesopotamia. Sargon is the name of a legendary warrior-king whose dynasty controlled Mesopotamia for more than a century. We took inspiration for Sargon from the English Ale style, and added a ginger-and-rum flavour infusion.

Sargon-3

Pours deep orange to copper in colour, with a dry finish. Ginger is dominant in this sessionable ale that offers fresh root aroma and snappy, peppery taste. Sweet malt provides a balanced counterpoint. The finish is clean and slightly bracing with gently lingering rum notes. 600 ml, 6% alc./vol.
