Publican House Brewery has reached a great milestone this October, celebrating 10 years in business in Peterborough.
The idea for Publican House sprung in 2004 when co-founder Marty Laskaris saw an opportunity in the craft beer industry and over some beers and help from the former head brewer at Kawartha Lakes Brewing Company, hatched a plan.
After several years of renovations, the first beer was poured and growlers were available for sale in October 2008. Initially, beer was available for sale only at its on-site store.
Nowadays, most Publican House brands are available for sale in cans, growlers, bottles and kegs at the Brewery store, select LCBO’s, Beer Stores and grocery stores. Expansion of the brands continues in other areas and regions as well.
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary, Publican House has crafted a limited release beer, the 10th Anniversary Maibock (pictured below), with only 1,000 bottles available. This beer can be purchased in 750ml bottles in the Publican House Retail Store and on tap in the Brew Pub, while supplies last.
The 10th Anniversary Maibock, at 6% ABV, is golden amber in colour with rich aroma notes of butterscotch, dried apricot, sweetened bread and candied sugar. This uniquely crafted ale is sensibly hopped and malt forward in character, and is slightly sweet with hints of toffee, honey, bread and nut. It is unfiltered, and medium in body with an enjoyable mild finish.
Tenth anniversary celebrations this month culminate with a Pig Roast on Saturday, October 20th from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. on the Publican House patio.
This event will feature live music, beer specials, free brewery tours and more. The cost is $10 per person and includes a roasted pork sandwich. Tickets are available at the door.
