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 an Ikinuki Ungespundetes Kellerbier by Godspeed Brewery at Bar Hop BrewcoGood lager with strong malt base but heavy hit of hops as well. Good body, full but not heavy. A pleasure to drink.
- Greg C. is drinking an After Hours: Raspberry Sour by PEI Brewing Company (Gahan) at King & DufferinSurprised to find this treat from my home province at the LCBO. Very good raspberry sour with natural tasting tart berry flavour.
- Greg C. is drinking a Breakfast Stout by Founders Brewing Co. at King & DufferinClose to 2 years old. A bit oxidized but still everything you expect from FBS - chocolate, coffee, tasted oats & more. Always a classic.
- Greg C. is drinking a Monks' Reserve Ale by Spencer Brewery at King & DufferinDoesn’t have the depth of a Belgian Trappist, but for a New World take on a Quad, it’s very good with strong malt base & nice spice notes.
- Greg C. is drinking an Extra Brut Ipa by 3 Brasseurs | 3 Brewers at The 3 BrewersHits the target for what I expect from the style - very dry, effervescent, aromatic, refreshing & quick to drink. Well done!
