(Charlottetown, PE) - In 1777, after Rev Theophilus Desbrisay was taken prisoner by privateers and released without a penny to his name, he journeyed to Charlottetown determined to share his faith. There he found his parish meeting in the back of an old tavern; a welcoming community that would help shape the Island to what it is now.
To commemorate this bit of Island history, and to help celebrate the 250th anniversary of St. Paul's Anglican Church, Upstreet Craft Brewing have created Red Stone Stock Ale, a very special brew inspired by the era. Oak aged and lightly carbonated to bring out the simple grain bill of English Pale, Medium Crystal and Chocolate malts, this beer packs a complex flavour profile that offers a mild tartness and dry finish.
Red Stone Stock Ale blends traditions of yesterday with the tools of today, and will be available in limited quantities in liquor stores across the Island. Proceeds from the sale of every bottle will help fund St. Paul's Anglican Church outreach programs.
