MBR July 28, 2017 - New Brunswick/PEI Edition

Welcome to the final Maritime Beer Report for New Brunswick and PEI. 

Les Brasseurs du Petit-Sault are celebrating their 3rd anniversary at the Petit-Sault Beer Garden, starting at noon from August 2nd to 6th. They have got a few surprises that will be revealed over the week end. 

Celtic Knot Brewing has two more beers on tap for growler fills at the new brewery. For Shore - Session IPA and Monkey Town - mango pale ale are on this week end.

Loyalist City Brewing announced the next release in their summer beer series. Peach Giant is an unfiltered berliner weisse that is literally packed to the brim with fresh peaches. Peach Giant is a tart German style Berliner Weisse that pours a hazy orange pint with a persistent white head that gives off a tremendous peach aroma. The sweet flavor and aroma of peach is complimented by a light doughy sweetness from the mix of German wheat and pilsner malt used in the mash. The mash is soured using their house strain of four different lactobacillus species resulting in a complex and refreshing sour profile that compliments the stone fruit flavor. After the initial fermentation has completed, they pile as much peach as they can into the fermentor and allow it to referment before cold crashing and kegging. The result is a light bodied sessionable summer beer that is bursting with peach flavor and aroma.
Brewed with 100% natural ingredients and left unfiltered this beer is best enjoyed fresh.

Railcar Brewing will be open Saturday July 29th from 10 AM to 10 PM, stop by and check their new space out. Coffee will be on and they have some sweet treats available, sample some of their ales.
