I received a press release from Picaroons today announcing that for the first time, their Harvest Ale is available in bottles at ANBL locations throughout the province. The brew is made with 100% locally harvested maritime hops and 100% Canadian grains.
Unique to this product is the ability to determine where the hops were produced. On each bottle there is a special code that can be referenced on this link to determine what farm harvested the hops. Wysmykal Farms, Happy Hopyard and Southan & Co. all produced hops for this limited edition brew.
For those who follow me on Twitter (
@ACBeerBlogger) may have noticed, I had the chance to try this brew (batch 2039/40 from Happy Hopyard Cascade) last Saturday and absolutely loved it. The beer is available for a limited time so pick some up, unless quantities are limited in which case you should save it for me.
