Maritime Beer Report - April 4, 2014

Hello and welcome to the April 4th, World Belgian Beer Day, edition of the Maritime Beer Report.

Hammond River Brewing helped in the inaugural brew at Big Axe Brewery last week end. Big Axe are going to have a cream ale and IPA for their initial offerings.

Celtic Knot Brewing was busy this week brewing their first test batch of a new recipe they developed. From the brewer "The beer will be called "For Shore", kinda poking fun at how Maritimers say "for sure" This new beer will be in the style of an India Session Ale, meaning it will be light in colour, around 5% alcohol, low in bittering but very high in hop flavour and aroma. I won't be calling it an India Session Ale though, I will be calling it a Maritime Session Ale. This beer will be brewed using only hops from Australia and New Zealand".

Grimross Brewing told me they are bringing two versions of Cheval D'Or to the Saint John Beer Fest. They are similar beers - one brewed with French Saison yeast and the other with Farmhouse Ale.

Picaroons Traditional Ales have annouced this years Dooryard will be out on Earth Day, April 22nd. They also ask do you want your cat to become famous? They need your cat again. Send them a HI-RES pic of your awesome cat, that they will use for their new Melonhead label. They will let you know if your cat made the cut, right before Melonhead hits the shelves in June.Send your cat pictures to MelonheadContest@gmail.com by Thursday April 24th in jpg/.pdf/.tif filetypes.

Pumphouse brewery are searching for a qualified Brewer to join their Brew Crew, feel you got what it takes and looking for a new challenge drop them a resume.

Big Spruce Brewing is turning 1 year old this Saturday April 5th from 5pm to close at the Bras d'Or Yacht Club in Baddeck, NS. The event will feature the release of our 1 year Anniversary Scotch Ale, plus will have Kitchen Party Pale Ale, Ready Yer Knot....Regatta Red, Cereal Killer Oatmeal Stout, and You Spin Me White Round Wheat IPA on tap. Speaking of the Anniversary Scotch Ale, they were busy in the brewery infusing their "The Whole Nine Yards" 1 Year Anniversary Scotch Ale with Glenora Single Malt 10 yr old Whisky. Jeremy says "Malty, with a distinct roast flavour and all the smoky/peaty goodness from the Glenora Whisky, this beer weighs in at 6.5% ABV."

Garrison Brewing Co. announced the return of the Test Batch #3459 today. I don't have any details yet. They also announced that Daniel brewed the first beer in the new brewery and of course it's Irish Red - the beer that started it all.

Hell Bay Brewing Company also celebrated their 3rd anniversary on April 1st. Congrats Mark
