Garrison Comes to PEI
The good news from Nova Scotia today is that Garrison is shipping a couple of their brews over to PEI, to actually - get this - be available in our liquor stores! Tall Ship Amber has been available on PEI in draft form previously, but nothing from Garrison (or Nova Scotia from that matter... I mean, it is so far away, right?) has ever been available in bottled form. Better than that is that their Hop Yard Pale Ale is coming, too. While it's a bit of a lightweight in terms of bitterness and hoppiness (compared to the stronger IPA style at least), I think it's instantly the hoppiest (and probably just about the best) beer available to Islanders. Good news all-round. Hopefully this opens up the beer gates to PEI a bit more.
