Lorna spent her early life growing up on her family farm north of Port Hope. It was there that she began to practice making preserves, and she has continued throughout her life. Making all kinds of different preserves from jams to tomato sauces, Lorna became adept at it, and one day while enjoying her favourite Publican House brew - Square Nail with her partner Terry, the thought struck her, “I wonder what beer jelly would taste like..” From there, an idea was born. After much experimentation, and even more sampling using Publican House Brewery beer, a product was developed that exceeded their expectations. The product was truly delicious, and it wasn't long before Terry and Lorna began to share their wonderful product with the world.
Starting inside their own home, Terry and Lorna began to perfect and produce their recipes, selling their beer jelly exclusively at The Publican House Brewery. As with any good product, it didn't take long for the secret to get out, and before too long retailers all over began asking for the opportunity to sell beer jelly.
Since then, Terry and Lorna have worked tirelessly to bring their beer jelly, and other products, to the market. The beer jelly they produce is a truly delicious product with endless versatility.
