title The Island's First Brewery
creator Holman, H. T.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description The Island's first brewery offered no carefully packaged brand name ale or beer. It probably did not even have a name. If it did it was 'Cambridge's Brewery,' 'Wright 's Brewery,' or possibly 'Bird Island Creek Brewery.' And its product was not bottled but barrelled. The creek in question is now known as Wright's Creek and the millpond is visible from the St. Peter's Road in East Royalty. It was here that the Island's first ale was brewed some 170 years ago. Islanders' long-standing love affair with beer suggests that the enterprise should have prospered, but the following documentary trail does not indicate success, but failure.
