Maritime Beer Report - August 1, 2014

Happy International Beer Day and coincidentally Happy Anniversary to the Beer Report. Here is the news for August 1st 2014.

PEI Brewing Company are asking for your help. They want you to come in and help choose their newest Stout. How do you do this? Purchase two samples pick one and this also gets you to be entered to be entered to win VIP tickets to the Prince Edward Island Beer Festival.

Big Tide Brewing Co. announced that to celebrate their upcoming 5th anniversary on August 5th, they are brewing Anniversary Amber Ale. Using 5 varieties of specialty malt, 5 varieties of hops, and looking forward to a smooth, malty full-bodied ale that is 5.5 ABV and around 55 IBUs.

Les Brasseurs du Petit-Sault is looking for a part-time sales clerk, 20-25 hours a week. Check out their web site for details.

Hammond River Brewing released their Gammie California Steam Ale is now on tap at Shiretown Publicans and The Barrel's Head. From HRB "This is a very easy drinking beer with nice toasty notes and a Piney aroma from the Northern Brewer Hops. It's 5.3% ABV and 37 IBUs, and as most already know, this beer is a tribute to the recent passing of my amazing Father"

Pump House Brewing released Raspberry Wheat on tap. It is a German style wheat beer bombarded with 40 kg of raspberries. This is a beer for the raspberry connoisseur, delectably tart and refreshing and comes in at 5.5% ABV

Boxing Rock Brewing Company snuck a new beer out last week. Enter Sessionista that Boxing Rock describes as follows "The first thing you notice is an intense malt aroma reminiscent of an English Bitter, surrounded by a floral whiff of lemon blossoms and orange. Then some roasty malt notes on the palate followed by a pithy lemon-lime finish.
Not too bitter, not too heavy, just right for summer at 3.5% ABV, yet so full of flavour you'd swear that it was more.
Available for a very limited run in 650 ml bottles at Bishop's Cellar, Premier Wine & Spirits, Harvest Wines and Cristall Wine Merchants.
It will also be available in one litre growlers every Saturday at the Halifax Seaport Market, and the Shelburne Farmers' Market, (while supplies last) and in our own brewery store in Shelburne.
Look for it at your favourite craft beer locations. You might also find it at Stillwell Beer Bar, The Stubborn Goat, The Lion & Bright Cafe and others."

Garrison Brewing Co. is also looking for a Marketing, Retail & Events Coordinator to join their team. It looks like a fabulous job, you can get the details on their website now.

Rudders Brewpub tells me they have a new beer on tap in Yarmouth. A brown ale called Midnight Crossing. This 6% ABV ale is dark brown with a red tinge, caramel head. Malty aroma and a mild hoppy finish using two English and one Australian hop.

In late breaking news Gahan House Brewpub is expanding interprovincially and opening a second location on the Halifax waterfront. This is exciting news and they are now hiring all positions from Manager on down for a September opening.

It has been one year since I started doing this and if wasn't for all the great in the brewing industry and great supporters I doubt I would keep doing this. Thanks for a great year and hope to see a bunch of you at the Seaport beer fest next week end and as always enjoy responsibly.
