Patrick Jardine, Director of Operations at the Brewery, said “ Research and development projects of this kind are an important part of the ‘craft’ in craft beer making . We feel honoured to have been selected to partner with Acadia University in work which could lead to unique yeast strains to make special Nova Scotia branded craft beers. It is an important step in our journey to be among the leaders in specialized beer production in our province”. Jardine also said that the Brewery intends to share this research with other Nova Scotia breweries through the Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia.
They will be looking for wild yeast on the South Shore collecting in Blue Rocks, Stonehurst, Ross Farm, Ovens, Peggy's Cove and more.
