PEI Brewing Co's Beach Chair Lager


It's not out yet... well, it kind of is. It's been on tap at ISE's and maybe Gahan in some form before... and may still be... anyway, it'll soon be here for "real". Apparently the lager's in the can (literally) and is just waiting for a release in the second week of June or so. Look for the official commercial online May 22nd. In the meantime, here's a couple of pics of the new brew, plus a video of outtakes from the commercial.

I had a couple of pictures of the can and the label design, but was actually asked within two days to remove them prior to the official press release. Weird. I kind of get it, but... don't they want help with the hype? Why wait for an "official" release, when the stuff's on Facebook and YouTube? I didn't feel like getting into any Internet copyright law arguments, so, in their place, I have rendered my own image of what the can looks like:

If you still want to see the images of the real thing, look no further than the super-secret Facebook page for Beach Chair Lager.

I must say, I like the can design more than I thought I might (except the mixed fonts), and although I don't care a ton for the name, the "Grab a Chair" slogan's a great fit for it.
