The Prince Edward Island Brewing Company says its flagship brand, Beach Chair Lager, will now be available in New Brunswick.
“Our fans in New Brunswick have been asking for Beach Chair Lager since we launched it last summer in P.E.I.,” says Jeff Squires, president of the P.E.I. Brewing Company.
“We applied for a listing last year, and we are pleased to announce that the New Brunswick Liquor Commission has responded. We want to thank all New Brunswickers for their patience and their support.”
Beach Chair Lager was the top-selling brand for the P.E.I. Brewing Company last season and has the distinction of being the first canned craft beer ever brewed in Atlantic Canada.
Brian Watson, a global brewer and beer judge based in New Zealand, describes Beach Chair Lager as “a crisp, refreshing, hand-crafted lager that combines Canadian Pilsner malt and the subtle spicy aroma of noble hops — a truly enjoyable craft lager experience.”
The Prince Edward Island Brewing Company is expanding operations in Charlottetown to meet the growing national demand for its product line.
“We are opening a world-class brewery at 96 Kensington Road in Charlottetown in May of 2013,” says Squires. “We look forward to brewing more great beer for the Canadian marketplace and hosting visitors at our exciting new location this spring.”
