Beaus OCB Pan-Ontario Collaboration Ale 2014
This year’s version is a blend of Matt’s Sleepy Time Belgian-Style Imperial Stout from Beau’s, a special Canadian oak barrel-aged version of Oast House Biere de Garde, and Sawdust City The Princess Wears Girl Pants Belgian Golden Ale.
American Strong Ale
Not a style, per se, but the only logical category to incorporate the plethora of strong, stylistically vague beers coming from American micros these days. Some are related to English Strong Ales, but with more hop, while others are ultra-strong variants on the IPA theme. But no matter how varied their origins or characters might be, all are intense, potent, with generous quantities of hops and malt.
