AKA Beer Launches in Bathurst, NB

BATHURST, NB – A new family-run nanobrewery based out of a popular pub in Bathurst, New Brunswick has announced the debut of its first beer.

AKA Beer has been founded by brothers Adam and Kyle Hodnett and their father Andy – with their initials forming the brewery name – in partnership with Michael Petrovici, owner of Au Bootlegger, a bar located at 100 Main St. in downtown Bathurst.

The first beer to be brewed on the half-barrel system is Prohibition Ale AKA Bootlegger’s Brew, an amber ale that is available exclusively at Au Bootlegger. Future beers are planned to be developed based on input from local customers, as well as locally sourced ingredients.
