We are very proud to announce that, for the third time in a row, BELLEROSE got awarded at the IBC (International Beer Challenge) which took place in London last month. This year we won the bronze medal in the Saison Ale category, and we bettered that with a silver medal in the design and packaging competition. So it yet again proves that we are not only a great tasting beer, but we look good too. BELLEROSE continue its winning run as the most awarded French beer, showing to the worldwide community that it's a beer that counts. Bellerose is proving time and time again that France is not only wine and cheese, we can also make tasty, hoppy, original and delicate craft beer!
With great pride we'd like to announce that Moxie's Classic Grill has selected Bards Beer to be it's exclusive gluten free beer Canada wide. We knew it was a great product and are delighted with this endorsement. Celiacs, you now know where to dine.

It is a 100% natural operation which allow to keep all the flavours and taste our top fermented and bottle conditioned ales. A sample of every batch is sent for analysis to an official laboratory. It must achieve a gluten level under 20 ppm to be commercialized as "gluten free".
Appearance: Clear, golden color. Pours with a fine, persistent head.
Aroma: Beyond the yeasty essence, a subtle acacia and alpine meadow fragrance. Stable and persistent aroma.
The first taste is supple, balanced, almost round, pronounced with smooth, pollinated notes. Exceptionally pleasant aperitif beer. Thirst-quenching, finishes with a mild bitterness.
Beer and Food Pairings: Should serve especially well with a variety of vegetable-based tapas and light vinaigrette.
