Sounds awesome!

It would be cool to be able to get some on tap in Saint John some day. The more brewers the merrier in my books... i have night mares where i'm back in university and the only beer on tap is moosehead and bud light  :shakes:

Thanks guys. That was a HUGE surprise to us. We were known at the Fredericton Craft Beer Fest since we're serving at the restaurants around here, but to go into SJ pretty well unknown and walk out with an award for our IPA was a real treat.

Sounds like the 1BBL system will need an upgrade soon  :cheers:

well, that escalated quickly ...

to clear the air, Yes, Dan and I are eyeing up expansion - we're going through zoning right now with the City for this property, and have talked a couple times with Plaza on this building. Both Dan & I were FLOORED when we heard of this yesterday morning. Nothing has been signed yet, so nothing is a sure thing. We both thought this was very premature (to put it lightly) and the guy from Plaza called to apologize for spilling the beans. I guess when he agreed to do the interview, he didn't even realize that the Microbrewery was going to be discussed. He thought it was going to be a very general discussion of the building. When the interview opened with questions about TrailWay it caught him offguard, and eventually opened up about our plans.

Needless to say, we're pretty excited about the whole thing but there is a fairly lengthy process that needs to play its course with zoning, signing leases, buying equipment, etc. Most of this we've initiated but far from any type of announcement.

Wish us luck  :cheers:

Well said. Premature announcement is an understatement, so everyone forget about this and act surprised when/if we announce something in several months!

For those that haven't seen it on the TrailWay Facebook or Twitter feed, we're going to be tapping a couple casks of double IPA tomorrow night at the ale house. It was a collaboration beer we did with @Roger & @Fhilo from the Club. Come out and tell these two schmucks how much you enjoy their beer!

Cask 1 was dryhopped again in the the cask, and cask 2 we added bourbon soaked Spanish cedar to it ... and there will also be a 50L on tap as well of the DIPA. If it goes anything like our last cask night, there is a chance these won't last much longer than an hour or so, so don't be too late if you're planning on trying some cask beer.

I'm heading there right from work around 4:30, and we'll likely tap em around 5ish. Hope to see a few people out for this!
