Beau’s Relaunches Fogo Island Inn Collaborative Beer 49° 54°
What began as a small batch brew conceived of in 2016 to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday is back. On October 25, 2018, Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co. relaunched 49° 54°, the distinct myrrh-smoked gose created in collaboration with Fogo Island Inn. Following a week of outport immersion in 2016 foraging for wild foods and inspiration throughout Fogo Island’s barrens, bogs, and singular landscapes, Beau’s married hand-picked partridgeberries, sea salt harvested from our shores, and bark from Fogo Island’s paper birch trees to create a beer smoky with aromas of incense and brine, and a mildly tart, nicely balanced, sweet finish.
Named after Fogo Island’s geographic coordinates, 49° 54° was the first in a year-long series celebrating the provinces and territories of Canada during its sesquicentennial celebrations of 2017. The place-specific, hazy orange brew is now available in the Inn’s Dining Room and Lounge, as well as across Ontario and Quebec.
