ORANGEVILLE, ON – Hockley Valley Brewing has announced details of the latest release in the Legends of the Bay series of seasonal bottles from its Midland Beer Works imprint that commemorate various legends and ghost stories from Georgian Bay and the surrounding areas in Ontario.
Ghosts of Hope Island is named for the stories of hauntings on Hope Island, a now uninhabited island near Christian Island in Georgian Bay. More details on the dark history of the island can be found in an entry on the website of the Ontario Ghosts and Hauntings Research Society.
The beer being featured in all bottles in the series is an amber ale that Hockley Valley’s Tom Smellie indicates is essentially the same as the flagship Hockley Amber, although it may be “tweaked” for some installments.
Legends of the Bay: Ghosts of Hope Island is available now in 650 ml bottles at select LCBO locations in Ontario.
