Brewery

“Upstreet carries four flagship beers, several seasonals and craft sodas. Their tap room has a casual atmosphere with some old school arcade games and board games. Their small menu is thoughtful and uses PEI products. Upstreet is a pillar of the local community that uses its business as a force of good! 10% of the proceeds of thier Do Gooder Ale goes to the Do Good fund for local arts and culture initiatives. ”
