A great addition to Nova Scotia’s craft beer offerings


My granddaughter Kate’s first birthday provided an opportunity to sample the newest addition to Nova Scotia’s craft beer landscape. Big Spruce Beer, brewed on the Yankee Line in Nyanza, is perishable, and must be refrigerated. It is sold only at the brewery, and only in these 1.89 l. (2 US quart) jugs (which ensures its status as a sociable drink).

It has a mild, hoppy edge, and compares favourably with the best offerings from Propeller or the Granite Brewery. Well done!

UPDATE: Big Spruce will have launch parties atĀ Governors Pub in Sydney on April 12th, and The Wooden Monkey in Dartmouth on April 20th. (What, no Bearly’s?)
