CHARLOTTETOWN (September 14, 2020) – The PEI Brewing Company is proud to announce that they received two awards in two separate categories at the 2020 Canadian Brewing Awards which were held in a virtual awards ceremony on September 12th. These Awards are Canada’s national competition for judging the quality of Canadian manufactured beer and a medal is a widely recognized symbol of Canadian brewing excellence.
 
Beach Chair Lager won silver in the North American Style Premium Lager category. Beach Chair Lager is an approachable craft lager made with top quality Canadian Pilsner malts, spicy European noble hops and lager yeast. The brand was launched in 2013 as the first canned craft beer in Atlantic Canada and quickly became a go-to part of the PEI experience.
 
Gahan Setting Day Saison won bronze in the Session Ale category. The award marks two wins for Setting Day, which took home gold at the 2016 awards. Setting Day is made with moderate alcohol but full of character. A perfect complement to a hard day's work.

Jeff Squires, President of the PEI Brewing Company, commented; “It is an honour to have two of our beers recognized at the national level again this year. We are very proud of our brew team whose passion and dedication continue to deliver amazing products year after year. It is incredibly rewarding to have our products recognized by the industry, our peers and supporters. These two beers in particular are Island through and through and it’s quite special to have them represent PEI on the national stage.”

TORONTO, Ont. (September 11, 2020) — Canadian beer lovers will soon be able to get their hands on one of the most popular American craft IPAs here at home, courtesy of Toronto-based Steam Whistle Brewing.

Steam Whistle and American craft brewing pioneer New Belgium Brewing are partnering again to bring the distinctive Voodoo Ranger IPA to the Canadian marketplace. Steam Whistle will brew Voodoo Ranger IPA at its Etobicoke facility and market and distribute one of the U.S. fasting growing IPAs. Voodoo Ranger IPA will be available across Canada starting in September. 

The new agreement builds on a successful partnership between the two beer producers, which saw Steam Whistle begin brewing and marketing New Belgium Brewing’s Fat Tire Amber Ale in Canada in 2019.

“Our breweries share a lot in common in terms of our commitment to quality, sustainability and our desire to make one-of-a-kind products that consumers can get anywhere else,” says Tim McLaughlin VP Marketing at Steam Whistle. “We’ve worked together very well over the past two years expanding the market for Fat Tire, so this new agreement allows us to develop that relationship even further with a fantastic new beer in Voodoo Ranger IPA.”

Voodoo Ranger is a golden IPA that combines tropical aromas and juicy fruit flavours from Mosaic and Amarillo hops. Light golden and bright with a little particulate and medium-thin white foam. Voodoo Ranger packs a perfectly bitter bite and a refreshing finish.  Voodoo Ranger IPA is 7.0 % ABV with an IBU of 50.
