New Brunswick, Canada
4.2% ABV • IBU 30

In 1859, postmaster general Charles Connell, a Carleton County loyalist, ordered new postage for New Brunswick. Uproar ensued in 1860 when the five-cent stamps appeared bearing Charles Connell’s own face, an error that soon resulted in his resignation. Most, though not all, specimens were destroyed and 115 years later, the extremely rare and valuable “Connell Stamp” is prized and sought by collectors around the world. For the rest of the story, visit the Carleton County Historical Society. Brewed in support of the Carleton County Historical Society and Connell House in Woodstock, N.B. (This beer is second in a series of beers supporting historically significant institutions in New Brunswick. First in the series was the “104th Regiment,” in support of the Fredericton Region Museum.)
