MBR July 28, 2017 - Nova Scotia Edition

Welcome to the final Maritime Beer Report for Nova Scotia. 

2 Crows Brewing released three beers this week all limited to glasses and flights only. Little Lightning is a golden mild brewed with Chris McDonald and Ever-Wood is a DIPA conditioned on white wine oak, brewed in collaboration with Everwood Ave Brew Shop. The third beer released yesterday is Swan Fan Makkum, an APA, that has been absolutely loaded with Simcoe, Belma, Citra, and Hallertau Blanc hops and clocks in at 5% and 13 IBU. It is super juicy, bright, citrusy, and peachy. This particular was brewed for all the Tall Ships coming into town this weekend, as part of the Tall Sips celebration. The beer is named after a tall ship that our co-founder Mark worked on as a teenager, that was owned by his uncle. At the time, Swan Fan Makkum was the largest brigantine in the world, and it has since been sold to the Italian Navy where it is used as a training ship. The Tall Ship 'Wylde Swan', which is in Halifax this weekend, was also once owned by Mark's family. Might as well drink a beer to celebrate.

Chill Street Fresh Beer and Cider Market will be celebrating their Grand Opening weekend from July 28th to the 30th. It has been a month since they opened the doors. There will be a BBQ, entertainment, beer and food sampling, in-store specials and prize giveaways. There will be a short official ribbon cutting on Saturday, July 29th at 1:00 PM.

Good Robot Brewing says their Beta Brewsday next Tuesday will feature King in the North (End), a Game of Thrones-themed Black IPA brewed by staff members Chris Jonarchy and Kelly Costello. The 4.5%ABV and 55 IBU Black IPA features Simcoe, Chinook hops and Horton Ridge 2 row and Maris Otter malt. 

Propeller Brewing continues their cask nights tonight at 5 PM with Cascade American Pale Ale naturally carbonated and dry hopped in the cask with Nelson Sauvin and Falconer's Flight hops. There's only 20L so show up early before it's all gone.
