MOOSEHEAD CELEBRATES GRAND OPENING OF SMALL BATCH BREWERY AND TAP ROOM

Opening June 9, brewery features new innovations from Moosehead

[Saint John, NB] - On Saturday, June 9 at 10:00 a.m., the doors to Moosehead’s new Small Batch Brewery and Tap Room will open for the first time, offering a completely new Moosehead experience. The brewery features an on-site tap room, retail store, growler fill station, and a selection of Moosehead merchandise for sale.  The tap room will serve as the beginning and end point for all Moosehead Brewery Tours.

With a 20-barrel brewing system and a 3-barrel pilot system, the new small batch brewery will also allow Moosehead to create new beers in smaller quantities. At opening, five brand new Moosehead beers will be available for beer lovers to either enjoy at the Small Batch Brewery or to purchase and take home in 64oz growlers.

“Our brewing team has been itching to experiment with new beer flavours and styles in ways that we simply haven’t been able to accommodate in our main brewery. The Small Batch Brewery provides us with the flexibility to innovate in completely new ways,” said Andrew Oland, President and CEO, Moosehead Breweries. “This weekend’s opening is the culmination of several years of planning, and we cannot wait to share a pint with Saint John residents and visitors.”

The five new beers on offer at launch are a Stout, Dunkel-Weizen, Bock, Session IPA, and October Brown Ale, the latter of which was inspired by the first beer Moosehead’s matriarch Susannah Oland brewed in 1867.  In addition to these new Small Batch beers, a number of core Moosehead beers will also be on tap at the brewery, including Moosehead Lager, Moosehead Light, Moosehead Grapefruit Radler, Clancy’s Amber Ale, and Moosehead Pale Ale.

Moosehead’s new Small Batch Brewery and Tap Room are located at the company’s historic West Side brewery at 89 Main Street West in Saint John. Grand opening celebrations, including contests and giveaways, will take place all weekend. To book tours and stay up-to-date on information related to the Small Batch Brewery, visit moosehead.ca.

Moosehead is Canada’s oldest and largest independent brewery. In 2017, the company celebrated its 150th anniversary of operation.
