MBR July 7, 2017 - New Brunswick/PEI Edition

Happy July, hope you all had a great week and here is what I know for this week. 

Les Brasseurs du Petit-Sault says participants at the 12th annual Roch-Voisine/Knights of Columbus 1932 celebrity golf tournament for the La fondation Bob Fife will be able to get their hands on a very limited edition beer. Bob Fife is their 100% local haskap ale. The event will take place August 7th and 8th at the Club de Golf Fraser Edmundston Golf Club with a number of high profile celebrities. Funds raised go to providing hot meals in school to underprivileged kids. The ale is 4.25% ABV.

Grimross Brewing has released Braunschweig(Brunswick) German Pils. This light but complex beer checks in at 4.5% ABV and is perfect for these hot summer days. It's on tap at the Brewtique and Taproom now.

Hammond River Brewing has a few more hoops to jump through and unfortunately they'll need to delay the scheduled of July 10th opening by a few days.Watch for updates.

Johnny Jacks Brewery released Farmhouse Ale in stores now. It is their take on a saison.

Trailway Brewing released Seeing Ekuanot this week. This is another installment in their single hopped IPA "seeing" series. Ekuanot is a super interesting and flavourful hop with complexity that really makes this beer drink like it has multiple hop varieties in it. This one though was different from any of their other hoppy brews in that about half of the dry hop was lupulin powder. Lupulin powder is concentrated lupulin separated from whole cone hops. The lupulin contains resins and aromatic and flavourful hop oils. The result is massive flavour and aroma without the vegetative and astringency that can be introduced when dryhopping at these rates with pellets or whole cone. Find it at the tasting room in Fredericton only this week.

Have a great week and I will be back real soon.
