Maritime Beer Report - November 22, 2013

Hello and welcome to the November 22, 2013 edition of the Maritime Beer report.

We start in northern new Brunswick today. Les Brasseurs du Petit-Sault announced they have 2 jobs available for brewers. Check out the postings on their facebook page if you are interested

Picaroons has released an Ember Ale, a smoked porter, available for a limited time only  and ONLY at the King Street Ale House. On the local front you can now get a large selection of Picaroons here in Halifax at Harvest Wines and Spirits as well as Cristall Wine Merchants now. Thanks for the tweet Krissy.

Pumphouse Brewery have released some details on its soon to be released Premium Pilsner. It is a new German style Pilsner, pale straw color, unfiltered, medium to low bitterness with Saaz hops and a 5.7% ABV. Look for this one in a special gift box soon.

Authentic Seacoast Brewing Company has successfully launched their Rare Bird Pale Ale into NSLC stores and at least one private store. Reports I am hearing are very positive. Watch for a review coming soon.

Big Spruce announced Left Breton Organic Conspiracy Imperial IPA. Deeply aromatic, and weighing in at 7.4% ABV and 81 IBU, this is an extremely limited release, single batch of original beer. Come get yours while supplies last. They are also pleased to announce that their competition is now an officially certified BJCP event. Should make it more fun for everyone involved. Beer needs to be dropped off at brewery by December 2nd or to Chris MacDonald in HRM.

Bridge Beer were at the Alderney Market in Dartmouth last week end. Good news for Dartmouth beer lovers to pick up some of their Belgian beers without crossing the bridge.

Meander River Farms reports that today they are doing a spruce harvest with Garrison Brewing Co. We know what is coming soon.

Paddys Irish Brewpub in the valley have a new seasonal brew on the way. The Frost Biter Winter Warmer 6% is on route to the fermenter and a growler or glass soon. Look for this one.

Schoolhouse Brewery is looking for a multi-talented individual to help establish and grow the Nano-Brewery in Falmouth Nova Scotia. Look for details on their facebook page or on 

Sea Level Brewing has released another seasonal beer, Crossing Muddy Waters Brown Ale. The Brown Ale comes in at 5.5% ABV and is available at the usual spots.

Fredericton Craft Beer Festival 2014 tickets on sale next Friday. It should be awesome and they make a great Christmas gift.
