St. John Brewers' beers are now available in New Hampshire and Maine.
Kevin Chipman and Chirag Vyas introduced their Mango Pale Ale and Island Hoppin IPA brews at a series of 'meet and pours' last week in the two states.
New England's not unknown to them. Their brews are in fact bottled by Maine's Shipyard Brewing, but until now they haven't been available in bars there. With New Hampshire and Maine on board, that makes seven states where the brewers' handcrafted beers can be enjoyed.
Part of the introductory tour included an appearance on Portland's Channel 23 and its Good Morning, Maine program. The highlight of the interview was when Erin Ovalle, the host, asked the guys, "You live on St. John?." Kevin and Cheech said, yes, they started the beer business on the island nine years ago.
"Wow," said Erin, "What a life brewing beer and living on St. John. Doesn't get much better than that."
The beer boys agreed.
