Brewed at Annapolis Brewing earlier this week, the beer was made using various malted grains from Horton Ridge, including barley and oats grown in PEI, and rye grown on the Horton Ridge farm, as well as Galena and Centennial hops from Fundy Hops in nearby Berwick.
The resulting beer is expected to be “something that is going to show off the hops, but it’s still going to be a fairly malt-forward beer, so you’re going to get a lot of the rye notes and showcase the barley as well,” according to Horton Ridge’s Stephen Mastroianni.
The yet-to-be-named beer is planned to be out in time for the opening of the new taproom at Annapolis Brewing in May. It will also be available at the May 13th launch of the Annapolis Royal Craft Beer Market, a weekly market featuring local breweries that will be taking place in Annapolis Royal Market Square on Sundays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
