FREDERICTON, NB – Picaroons Traditional Ales has announced the release of the 2016 edition of Picaroons Harvest Ale – or more accurately Harvest Ales, plural, as there are three different versions of this year’s offering to choose from.
As in the last several years, multiple batches of the pale ale were brewed with Maritime malts, and each with a different variety of freshly picked hops: Mt. Hood hops from Wallace Ridge Farm in Malagash, NS; Willamette hops from My Father’s Farm on the South Shore of PEI; and wild hops from Moose Mountain Hops in Maplehurst, NB.
For more details about the beers than what can fit on a label, a special “My Harvest” web page allows customers to look up the batch number to find out what hops were used to make the beer in the bottle, as well as a bit about the farmers who grew them.
All three versions of Picaroons Harvest Ale will be available while supplies last at ANBL locations throughout New Brunswick, NSLC outlets in Nova Scotia,and the Picaroons Brewtique in Downtown Fredericton.
