Notes: Our newest beer experiment has landed!

This dark and smokey ale has been brewed with a generous helping of real ORGANIC SUGAR KELP (Saccharina latissima) harvested off of the shores near St. George, New Brunswick, by way of Dr. Thierry Chopin of UNB Saint John. The Kelp is heavily blanketed by a strong malt backbone of roasted and smoked malts, and balanced out by a gentle hopping of Fuggles and Goldings hops. At 22 IBUs, and 5.8% ABV, it's like drinking a dark, malty, smokey beer, right after a cool brisk swim in the Bay of Fundy.

This is probably the best beer I've ever had, and I've tried many!

Kelptastic! A complex and fine mix of sweetness with a touch of saltiness
