    Gahan House: Home of the Gahan House microbrewery

    The Gahan House, Charlottetown, PEI

    I ate here in Sept. 2008. A popular dish here is the Brown Bag Fish and Chips, at $10.99, so I ordered that. Three pieces of battered fish come with french fries, served in a paper bag, on a plate. While it was good, I wasn't blown away. I think the fish was fresh (forgot to ask), but it was a better value for the money than an equivalent restaurant in Moncton, NB called, The Pumphouse, which also produces its own ales. (Their fish is frozen.)

    I also had a pint of their Honey-Wheat Ale ($5.49), which was very nice. I was also hoping to pick up a sampling of their six ales, to go, but was disappointed that not only is their ale not available in the Liquor Store just next door, but I would have had to buy a large jug called a "growler" at $10.00 (plus a $5.00 deposit on the jug), or a more expensive keg. I would have liked to have been able to buy a 6-pack sampler with one bottle of each ale, but they don't sell them that way.

    With tax, my meal came to CAD$19.00.

    Favorite Dish: The menu is pretty varied...seafood, pizza, steak, burgers, pasta, chicken, pork, and salads. The price range (in 2007) is from just under CAD$9.00 for items like 3-cheese pizza, Chicken Paillard, or a Veggie Stirfry, to $18.50 for an 8-oz striploin steak.

    This place is PEI's only brewery, and is open year-round, 7 days a week. Island handcrafted ales are brewed in the old-fashioned way, and the ingredients are 100% natural (no preservatives either). Pub food is available, including the famous brown-bag fish and chips.

    The local beers available include: Island Red Premium Red Ale, Harvest Gold, Coles Cream Ale, Ironhorse Brown, Sir John A's Honey Wheat Ale, and Sydney Street Stout.

    Favorite Dish: I LOVE the brown bag fish and chips. Very filling and tastes great.
