ROSE VALLEY, PE – The PEI Beer Guy blog reports that nearly two years after offering preview samples at the 2011 PEI Beer Festival, Barnone Brewing has finally been officially launched.
Founded by father and son team Hugh and Don Campbell (pictured above), Barnone is starting with two flagship beers: Summer Sessions, a golden wheat ale; and a moderately hopped Pale Ale.
Barnone’s 5 hectolitre brewing system is located on the family farm, where many ingredients for the beers are grown, including several varieties of hops that are also dried on site.
Barnone beers are currently available only on draught, with The Landing Oyster House & Pub in Tyne Valley being the first establishment to put them on tap. Distribution to other bars and restaurants in PEI is expected to follow soon, and a brewery retail store will be opening soon to offer growler sales.
