The Prince Edward Island Brewing Company have announced that their flagship brand Beach Chair Lager, is now available at select The Beer Store locations throughout Ontario. Since being released in Atlantic Canada in 2012, Beach Chair Lager quickly became an island favourite and is also available at select locations in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Also announced, the PEI Brewing Company’s Gahan Blueberry Ale is now available at select LCBO locations for a limited time only.
“We are very pleased to announce that Beach Chair Lager and Gahan Blueberry Ale have arrived in Ontario,” said Jeff Squires, President of the PEI Brewing Company. “We have had requests for our products from Ontario residents for some time, and we are thrilled that craft beer fans in Ontario will now be able to enjoy a little bit of PEI at home.”
An ode to malt and hops, the approachable Beach Chair Lager is made with only top quality Canadian malts, spicy European noble hops, and lager yeast. After lengthy cold-conditioning, the resulting clean character allows the malt and hops to sing out. Delicious and refreshing, Beach Chair Lager is the perfect summer beverage to unwind, so share a chair and sing along.
Brian Watson, a world-renowned global brewer and beer judge based in New Zealand, describes Beach Chair Lager as “a crisp, refreshing, hand-crafted lager that combines Canadian malt and the subtle spicy aroma of noble hops – a truly enjoyable craft lager experience!”
The Gahan Blueberry Ale, featuring blueberries from Atlantic Canada, offers a hint of the great aroma and sweetness of wild blueberries, making it not too sweet – just right.
Founded in 2012, the PEI Brewing Company had a breakthrough four gold medal award wins at last year’s Canadian Brewing Awards, making them Canada’s most awarded brewery in 2016. At this year’s Awards, the PEI Brewing Company had a triple win in three separate categories. The company currently brews and distributes the Gahan Line of Handcrafted Ales in addition to Rogue’s Roost and Beach Chair Lager.
