In case you haven't seen or heard, the final judging of this year's home brew competition is tomorrow at 2 pm at The Gahan House. The large field of competitors has been narrowed down to six for tomorrow's finale.
I was able to have several of the entries on Tuesday, and I must say there are some great summer brews in the mix. Whatever wins promises to be pretty great.

A sign will go out tomorrow, and the Facetwittergram machine will fire up, too, but tonight... I am lucky to be able to have the scoop (thanks, guys) and introduce PEI's third brewery.
I did a semi-formal Q-and-A with Upstreet's head brewer (as well as fellow Aleander and Brewnoser) Michael Hogan (who is joined in the venture by Joey Seaman and Mitch Cobb). I hope we have complied all (or at least almost all) of what you would want to know.

Well, just like the title says, hot on the heels of buying the Hart & Thistle, PEI's Murphy Group has also purchased Rogues Roost, a longtime-popular craft brew destination in Halifax. The article says they plan to maintain the staff and brewer, and hope to work on / build the brand, perhaps even growing it in Nova Scotia, PEI, and bottling their beer at the PEI Brewing Company in Charlottetown. They plan to stay at the current location, even after the upcoming development of the block.

Good news here today. The PEILCC is going to change the regulations on how strong brewers can brew their beers. Up until now, the limit has been 6.5%. The article says we're supposed to be on par with other provinces in the future. Good news for our two existing breweries, the brewery-in-progress in town, and the rumored one in the Montague area.
