Maritime Beer Report - December 27, 2013

Merry Christmas and welcome to the December 27th edition of the Maritime Beer Report.

PEI Brewing Company announced the first release in its Chef Series. Dwayne's Dunkel Lager has a delicious aroma w/ hints of oak and vanilla that goes down smooth at 5.7% ABV. I only saw this on their facebook and I am not too sure what this is about, I have a request in for more information.

Acadie-Broue microbrasserie launched a new beer on December 22nd called Valdrague Weizen. This new beer is a Hefeweizen with notes of banana, bubble gum, spices of cloves and a hint of bread. It comes in at 5% ABV and is available at Laundromat Expresso Bar in Moncton.

Bad Apple Brewhouse announced it will be open on Dec 31st from 1-8pm and Jan 1st to 6th from 3pm to 8pm. Only American Pale Ale will be available. If you can't make these hours give them a call, they can be flexible on hours. The first batch of Black and Tackle Stout is happily fermenting away to be released at a later date.

Granite Brewery notes that Hoppingmad is available on cask for the first in Halifax at Stillwell Beer Bar tonight.

Hart & Thistle Gastropub & Brewery offered a new beer just before Christmas. Off the Hop IPA is on tap at 7.4% ABV

Thanks everyone for all the support for my first five months and I look forward to a great 2014. I have plans for lots on new projects and I will be giving away VIP tickets to the Fredericton Beer Fest very soon. Take care, have a great holiday and as always enjoy responsibly.
