CHARLOTTETOWN — The P.E.I. Brewing Company’s products are now available in British Columbia.
The company had just recently announced that their product is now being shipped and sold in Alberta. Now, Sir John A. Honey Wheat, Island Red Ale and Beach Chair Lager are now being listed in various private and public liquor stores in Vancouver, Whistler and the Lower Mainland.
Mike Steer, president of the B.C. agency, Stanley Road Imports, is excited about the P.E.I. Brewing Company’s move into the B.C. marketplace.
“It’s a great feeling to be able to promote such an amazing product in one of the most successful craft beer markets in Canada,” said Steer. “P.E.I. Brewing Company brands are now being displayed on the floor of retail stores in Whistler, Vancouver Island, and throughout the Lower Mainland.”
Jeff Squires, president of the P.E.I. Brewing Company, is also thrilled to be shipping the company’s product to Western Canada.
“As a company, we have found that many people are aware of our beer in other parts of North America but, because of our location, our beer is harder to access, said Squires. “Being in various private and public liquor commissions we are able to bring fans what they wanted, but still crave more. Not only are we bringing beer to other parts of Canada, we are also promoting the Island and what the smallest province can produce, world-class craft beer.”
P.E.I., New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Alberta and British Columbia now all have Gahan Beer and Beach Chair Lager products on shelves in both private and public liquor stores.
