Hey y’all – we’d like to take a moment here to give you an update on Ice Boat Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. We’ve been working hard on this brew for the past 4 months – brewing, transferring, aging in whiskey barrels – and we know a lot of you (us included!) are extremely excited for the release.
Earlier this week we finally cracked open the barrels for taste-testing and quality control. The crew here at PEI Brewing Company is absolutely dedicated to providing our fans with the best beer our team can brew – and simply put, this beer isn’t ready yet.
What does this mean? We’re going to cap the barrels and let them age even longer – we’ll keep evaluating and testing the brew over the next 6-8 months in the hope that we’ll have something up to our (and your) standards for a PEI Brewing Company beer.
In the meantime, we have Black Banks now available in PEI and New Brunswick, we’ll have another version of our Transmitter Coffee Stout which will be available in Nova Scotia this time around (!!), our ReAnimator Bock will be available in the near, near future and a new saison will be announced in the near future as well. Lots of exciting things to come!
We appreciate your patience with this in the hopes that in the not-so-distant future, we’ll have a brew that is worthy of your tastebuds.
– PEI Brew Co team.
