About Us

Lone Oak Brewing Co will soon be a locally owned and operated, forward-thinking, craft brewery in Gateway Village of Borden-Carleton, PEI.

Our focus will be on innovation and quality while striving to use local ingredients. Agriculture is an important pillar for the Island economy full of talented professionals, which is why we will stand behind our farmers and their products.

Lone Oak Brewing Co is excited to bring top quality beer and cider to consumers from PEI and around the world.

The lone oak tree represents the two main pillars of our brand: quality and local.

Oak itself is a strong, quality wood used for centuries to build mankind’s finest products.

You can find a lone oak on the Island flag that represents the protection of our three counties. Our Island and its history are important to us and we want to represent all three counties in our brand.

Lastly, we will take our products and add a touch of oak. Our barrel line, available in spring 2020, will be aged to perfection using oak foeders and barrels.
