WOOT!
WE HAVE BEEN LIBERATED!!
FREEDOM!!!!
SOMETHING EXCLAMATORY IN LATIN!!!

Our Provincial Government has just eased back it's autocratically ridiculous control of liquor sales and is now allowing craft beers to be sold at liquor stores.

Labbat's, Molson, Mooshead, I am your slave no more!!!!!

So, John's pub that makes brews in its basement can now sell to liquor stores? That would be quite cool.

At first I thought you were happy about certain board members going on vacation.

More or less. They still need to pass some kind of authorization and testing process. Looks like they have to pass tests already put in place by the province of Ontario, since we would no such facilities of our own.

Basically, the biggest business man on PEI who owns all the Tim Hortons and almost every second restaurant, lobbied successfully to let his micro-brewery beer be sold in stores and so they had to open the door pretty much wide open to accommodate.

Finally, an abuse of power that resulted in something good.

This fairly newly elected government also legalized a distillery to sell moonshine last year. I'm thinking our elected officials may have a drinking problem. Snicker....

Can I get an "Amen" from the congregation?!?!

Maybe you'll even get some Allagash beers from Maine.

Hooray for fresh, non-factory beers!

It's pumpkin beer time again!!!

Picked up some Shipyard Brewing Co. Pumpkinhead Ale. Very cinnamony.

I don't like pumpkins (although I like jack-o-lanterns), I don't like pumpkin pie, but I likes me some pumpkin beer.

A man of mystery, I am.

Sean, you be crazy.

Pumpkin pie (with Cool Whip) is awesome. Pumpkin beer is gross.
