Beer, blues and barbecue!


Can’t wait for this weekend. My friends at Beau’s All-Natural Brewing Company are throwin’ a party and I’m goin’! The brewery, for those of you who have not yet heard of this slice of hoppy heaven, is located in the small town of Vankleek Hill in eastern Ontario, about an hour’s drive east of Ottawa.

On Saturday, March 25, Ottawa bluesman John Carroll and Montréaler Mike O’Brien will be playing blues and roots music at the brewery — including a one-hour candlelit acoustic set to celebrate Earth Hour! The folks at Beau’s have responsibly chartered a bus (one from Ottawa, one from Montréal) to ensure many guests will get there and back safely. (If you’re interested, book now through beausshows(at) – $15 for the round-trip bus and $10 for the show itself.)

Best of all, there will be food from The Branch restaurant, a proud Savour Ottawa member in Kemptville. The Branch will be serving their famous Texas-style house-smoked beef brisket and sausages, as well as some veggie and snack options, which sounds perfect to me! Only five more sleeps!
