  1. Stupid question but who is the actual brewmaster (not brewer)at PEI Brewing? I hear the name Brian but also Gordon.

    1. Not Gord. He's gone. Bryan Carver is the head brewer, but he's leaving the company at least for the time being to help a start-up in India for about half a year. Someone else will step up from within, I'm thinking (maybe Chris Long?).

  2. I wonder if that means a possible job opening for a well-read homebrewer willing to relocate to the Island? LOL

  5. Steve; it looks like the Atlantic Beer Blog read my mind. This morning they posted that the Pilot House and Water St. Fish and Chips both carry Barnone beers. I'm very excited to try them.

    1. You can also get one or two of their brews at The Old Traingle, and Cedar's Eatery / Baba's... as well as The Landing in Tyne Valley. Water Street Fish & Chips also has Pump House's IPA on tap, probably the best beer on tap (or otherwise) on PEI. (can't say how it stacks up against Barnone's IPA yet... haven't tried this new version)

  6. Barnone's pale ale was excellent! Fresh, clean and hoppy, but not very bitter. From the raw hop aroma I would guess it had a good deal of dry hopping. Pilot House didn't have the IPA. The Boundary Ale was excellent too.

    1. Glad to hear it! I wonder if you got the second version of the Pale Ale. Great nose - lots of tropical aromas from the Galaxy hops (not in the first version).

  7. Had Barnone’s Summer Sessions today at Water Street F+C. Nowhere near as impressive as the Pale Ale. It was brilliantly clear but almost completely without flavour (malt or hops) and had an unpleasant grainy astringency. I’ll stick to the Pale Ale.
