BORDEN-CARLETON, PE – A new brewery located near the spot where most arrivals and departures from Prince Edward Island take place is set to open its doors to the public today (November 29th) for the first time.
Lone Oak Brewing has been founded by Spencer Gallant – previously brewmaster for the Gahan House brewpub chain – along with partners Jared Murphy and Dillon Wight, and with assistance from Dan Hendricken.
Situated in Gateway Village, a retail and tourism development near the PEI side of the Confederation Bridge, the brewery plans to focus on “innovation and quality while striving to use local ingredients.” Malt, hops, and other ingredients will be purchased from suppliers in PEI and the other Maritime provinces whenever possible, and the tables, chairs, artwork and more in the 100-seat taproom and retail store were sourced from local artists and producers.
Lone Oak will be opening with four core brands – Yankee Gale Pale Ale (5.7% abv), South Shore Sour (5.0% abv), Fixed Link Maritime Pilsner (4.7% abv), and Iron O3chard Hard Cider (5.5% abv) – available on draught in the taproom, as well as in cans and growlers to-go. Cans will also be available soon at PEILCC locations throughout the province.
Lone Oak Brewing is located at 103 Abegwait Blvd. in Borden-Carleton, and will open today at 4:00 PM. For more details, see the Atlantic Canada Beer Blog profile of the brewery, as well as the Lone Oak website.
