Picaroons... in bottles... in PEI

In a move that both contradicts Sean Dunbar's notions over 2.5 years ago, and excites especially New Brunswickers living in / visiting PEI, Picaroons is now available in PEI.

After finding, surprisingly, two offerings, I heard from a brewer at the PEIBC today that Picaroons was to have three listings here, but in the two PEILCC shops I was in today, there was just two (although, in one shop, one brand took up two rows).

I also wanted to mention that, after literally years of sporadic tries, I finally had a Yippee IPA that allowed me to see what people who really like this beer have been talking about.

First Annual Gahan Homebrewers' Challenge

Today, at 3:55, local tech, beer, and Aleander guy Ryan Palmer became the first winner of The Gahan House / PEI Brewing Co.'s homebrewers' contest with his Cranberry Wit.

Congrats to a good guy who made a good, refreshing, and tart ale. The Aleanders are lucky to call you a member. I'll be eager to try the pub version of your brew!
