Prince Edward Island Brewing Company - The story began in 1997, when the founding partner, Island entrepreneur and restaurateur Kevin Murphy, established Murphy’s Brewing Company next to the Lone Star Café at 449 University Avenue in Charlottetown. Fast forward and many awards and accolades along the way, in 2012 Kevin Murphy formed a partnership with another local entrepreneur, Jeff Squires, to build The Prince Edward Island Brewing Company. The Prince Edward Island Brewing Company was established in February 2012, and immediately an expansion of the brewery was undertaken. Under the leadership of Jeff Squires, the company built a brand new brewery at 96 Kensington Road in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, which opened in May of 2013. Working with international beer experts, the PEI Brewing Company won Gold and Silver Medals at the 2012 Canadian Brewing Awards and a Silver Medal at the 2013 Canadian Brewing Awards.
