P.E.I. Brewing Company products are now being shipped right across Canada.
Sir John A. Honey Wheat, Island Red Ale and Beach Chair Lager are now being listed in various private and public liquor stores in Vancouver, Whistler and the lower mainland.
Mike Steer, president of the B.C. agency Stanley Road Imports, says he welcomes the new project from the East Coast.
Jeff Squires, president of the P.E.I. Brewing Company, says company officials are thrilled to be shipping their product to Western Canada.
“As a company we have found that many people are aware of our beer in other parts of North America, but because of our location, our beer is harder to access. Being in various private and public liquor commissions we are able to bring fans what they wanted, but still crave more. Not only are we bringing beer to other parts of Canada we are also promoting the Island andwhat the smallest province can produce, world class craft beer.”
P.E.I., New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Alberta and British Columbia now all have Gahan Beer and Beach Chair Lager products on shelves in both private and public liquor stores.
