During my time in Newfoundland I headed up North to a beautiful place called Fogo Island. Read the post Fogo Island, NL for the story, pictures and video. While on Fogo Island I had the oppurtunity to stay in the Luxurious Fogo island Inn. It was there that I was introduced to three fantastic local beers made by the Quidi Vidi Brewery from the neighbourhood of the same name in St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador.
“Quidi Vidi Brewing Company Limited (QV) was established in 1996. QV is a Newfoundland-based independent brewing company focused on producing world-class quality beers for the mainstream, specialty, and now the premium segment of the beer market. Founded by David Fong and David Rees, The Brewery competes in a market which has been dominated by national and international giants.” – Company Website
Quidi Vidi Premium ICEBERG BEER
This refreshingly light lager is brewed with 25,000 year old iceberg water harvested from Newfoundland’s awe-inspiring icebergs.
Quidi Vidi Honey Brown Ale
Quidi Vidi Honey Brown ale is created with a precise combination of Chocolate Malt and Crystal Malts, then embellished with the richness of honey and gentle hopping.
Quidi Vidi 1892 Traditional Ale
Brewed with the finest two-row malt and a generous helping of hops. This is a full bodied, reddish amber ale that will be enjoyed by those who prefer European-style beers with substantial flavour. 1892 Traditional Ale commemorates the year of the great fire in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
