Lobster Ale is a 6.5% abv Saison-style ale that is not only intended to be paired with lobster, but which also has a closer connection to the tasty crustacean, as head brewer Bryan Carver explains:
The beer contains a mash of malted barley, wheat and oats, with kettle additions of European noble hops, refined sugar, and lemon peel. The juice from the lemons was added to the beer during conditioning. A very small amount of lobster shell was also added, prior to fermentation with a Saison yeast. The beer has been tested for allergen compounds, and none were detected; however, those concerned with an allergic reaction should still “err on the side of caution”.
Lobster Ale is available now on draught and in bottles at the PEI Brewing retail store, and it will be available soon in bottles at select PEILCC locations.
