MBR November 25, 2016 - Nova Scotia Edition
Here is all the beer news for November 25th of Nova Scotia.
Good Robot Brewing has been very busy. Returning on tap is Burban Legend APA v7.0 that is dry-hopped with Mosaic hops and Awesome Beer, Great Job! what they call an autumn saison that is 6.4% ABV and 22 IBUs.
The funky folk groove band Earthbound Trio has collaborated with the next one and is on tap only at Time Traveller's Soiree, Thyme Hopper is a pale ale with organic Nugget hops from Lunahop in Cornhill, New Brunswick. Lunahop is owned by "Big Orange" Bob, the bass player from Earthbound Trio, who are featuring the beer at their Seahorse show on Friday. Time Traveller's Soiree is Friday, November 25 at 10 PM as part of their brewery tour concert series. They are also performing a sneaky peek matinee set from 4:00 to 6:00 PM on Friday right in their own taproom.
On Sunday, Good Robot are hosting a charitable Toy Drive and Cookie Decorating holiday event. A new-in-box toy of $20 value or more from you means a free pint with proceeds to Every Woman's Centre. Additionally, Rinaldo's will be selling fresh cookies for patrons to decorate with the proceeds going to Prescott Group which aids adults with learning disabilities.
Garrison Brewing released another beer in their cellar series, Rum-Barrel Aged Spruce Beer. This 11% ABV brew will retail for $15.95 and is on sale exclusively at the brewery. Like the Rum-Barrel Aged Honey Lavender from last week this beer is perfect for cellaring. The historic brew was aged in rum barrels from Lunenburg craft-distiller, Ironworks.
Hell Bay Brewing collaborated with the Christmas Tree Association of NS to create a unique Honey Blond Ale infused with Balsam Fir. Tannen Bomb will be available shortly and rings in at 5% ABV and 17 IBUs.
Saltbox Brewery now has Ironbound Scotch Ale back on tap. They say "It’s smooth and slightly smokey" that is 5.5% ABV and 15 IBUs.
Tatamagouche Brewing released Square One, a Farmhouse Ale, at Stillwell earlier this week. Dry-hopped with Citra, Amarillo and Hallertau Blanc and is 6.1% ABV.
Annapolis Cider latest Something Different is now on tap. Hopped Pear is a 6.5% ABV cider crafted from fermented dry cider made from diverse locally grown apples cold-steeped with three different hop varieties - Cascade, Mosaic, and Northern Brewer. This hopped dry cider was then blended with fresh-pressed Flemish Beauty heirloom pear juice. The result is a clear and golden cider with the light flavour and aromas of citrusy-hops without any added bitterness that is balanced out by mellow notes of fresh pear. Fifty cents from every refill will support the Wolfville Area Food Bank.
Have a great week and I will be back in one week.
