   NOCTURNE: ART AT NIGHT is a fall festival that brings art and energy to the streets of Halifax between 6 p.m.-midnight. The 2013 event will take place on Saturday October 19th. The completely free, sixth annual event showcases and celebrates the visual arts scene in Halifax. Nocturne, designed and planned by volunteers, is an opportunity for everyone to experience the art of Halifax in a whole new light. 
   The beer is a Munich Style Dark Lager inspired by Nocturne: Art at Night. The brew features deep mahogany hues with a clean lager nose. The flavours are rich and malty, accompanied by traditional German Noble hops gently asserting themselves while balancing the malt profile. The long aging period or "Lagering" and low bitterness make this brew very smooth and drinkable. Proceeds from each beer sold will be donated to Nocturne Halifax! 
   Propeller also tweeted that it had its first brew in at the Dartmouth brewery yesterday and guess what, it is an IPA
