Falls Brewing
(Tusket, NS) – Tusket Falls Brewing opened its doors on the week end . The owners of Nova Scotia's latest craft brewery are Melanie Sweeney and Jeff Raynard, who returned to the area after working a decade in Alberta. 
They received help on their first brews from Ryan Moncrieff, head brewer at Ribstone Creek Brewing,  and Aaron Hogarth, owner of Hogarth Malting. The brewing duties for the 20 BBL brewing system will fall upon Jeff and his sister Brandy Landry. 
Tusket Falls Brewing is located at 20 Slocomb Crescent in Tusket, about 15 minutes outside Yarmouth off highway 103. It features a taproom, retail space and will have 2 decks in the summer.

Look for one of their cans to hit the NSLC in February and another one in the April timeframe.
