(Dartmouth, NS) - Nova Scotia's newest brewer opened for business this week. Nine Locks Brewing, the name an homage to the Shubenacadie Canal system nearby, opened its new facility at 219 Waverley Road. The 7000 square foot facility currently includes their 20 BBL DME brew system, five fermentors and retail space.
They have an IPA and ESB currently available for growler fills at the brewery. A Porter and a Dirty Blonde will follow shortly to round out their offerings for the time being. The canning line is due to start later this month, the cans are due to be sold at the brewery, private stores as well as the NSLC. The latest I have is that the NSLC will carry single cans of the IPA and ESB as well as a four packs of the IPA.
The retail store is open Monday to Saturday from 12:00 PM to 9:00 PM and Sunday 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
