Cape Breton’s first Craft Microbrewery. Atlantic Certified Organic Facility. First and only on-farm Craft Microbrewery in the Maritimes. Only the second on-farm certified organic brewery in all of Canada!

Tasting Notes

Deep, brooding, intense, and full of rich spicy undertones. This Imperial stout pours inky black with robust aromas of molasses, gingersnap, dark chocolate, espresso, and whisky notes that lead into a full bodied beer with a silky smooth texture and a plethora of decadent flavours.



Every year the province of Nova Scotia presents the city of Boston with its official Christmas Tree. This tree is a “thank you” to the people of Boston for its quick aid after the devastating Halifax Explosion on December 6th, 1917.

To honour this tradition and the deep bond between these two regions, Big Spruce brewed this Whiskey Barrel aged, Fat Archie Molasses Cookie Stout with the help of Harpoon Brewery. With golden sugar, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove, along with conditioning in Glenora whiskey barrels from Cape Breton Island, it’s both layered and complex with a lingering warmth from the whiskey. Cheers to Harpoon and all our friends to the South!
