ST. JOHN’S, NL – A former fire hall in downtown St. John’s is now home to Newfoundland’s newest brewery and taproom.
Bannerman Brewing has been in the works since 2017, when it was originally planned to be called The Fire Hall Brewpub, before the new name was revealed late last year. The brewery name and tent logo has the following back story:
During the Great Fire of 1892, some 11,000 people lost their homes. Displaced, but not defeated, residents banded together with nothing more than a few belongings to set up a tent city in Bannerman Park. They weathered the aftermath of the fire and re-built the city. It’s this story of collectivism and community that Bannerman Brewing Co. proudly celebrates.
Bannerman welcomed guests for the first time on Saturday May 11th with six beers on tap for glasses and growler fills, including Sparks Joy Saison (5% abv), Shore Leave Sour (5.2% abv), Hill O’ Sips IPA (6.2% abv), Island Time Double IPA (8.2% abv), Thirst Trap Pale Ale (5.3% abv), and All Hands Helles Lager (4.8% abv).
Bannerman Brewing is located at 90 Duckworth Street in St. John’s, and is currently in soft opening mode with a limited food menu. More details including regular business hours are expected to be announced soon via the Facebook and Instagram.
- Greg C. is drinking a Mind On My Honey by Siren Craft Brew at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. Honey & smoky chilies in an Imperial stout sounds like a train wreck but this beer pulls it off beautifully.
- Greg C. is drinking a Proto 31: Imp Stout W. Cardamon & Tonka Beans by Brewski at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. A whole helluva a lot of cardamom up in here. That’s ok, I like that. Drinks frighteningly easy for its abv.
- Greg C. is drinking a Peanut Butter Jenkins by Thin Man Brewery at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. Full disclosure: I’m good friends with the brewer. But it’s still a big, tasty, chocolatey, peanuty stout.
- Greg C. is drinking an All Citra Everything by Other Half Brewing Co. at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. Yup, that’s a lotta Citra. Thick & deep & dank. Not something I want everyday but great for the style.
- Greg C. is drinking a Holz Pils by Four Winds Brewing at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. A beautiful and well-rounded Pils. The herbal hops are especially lovely. And look at that lacing!
