The Boxing Rock Brewing Company is located in Shelburne on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Exploding on the Nova Scotia scene in 2013, Boxing Rock’s team produces innovative and traditional beers, offering a wide range of styles and offerings for every taste and preference.
According to local folklore, Boxing Rock is where bickering seamen were left by their captain to sort out their differences. The choice: box until only one could return to the ship or shake hands and share a beer.
Fresh blueberries from the Parrsboro region of Nova Scotia give this striking beer it’s characteristic colour and awesome flavour. This unique indigo-hued beer is mildly tart and fruity which makes it the perfect thirst quencher.
Boxing Rock added fresh Nova Scotian blueberries to a light ale that’s been inoculated with souring bacteria. This process of souring beer has been around for a long time, where (usually) Lactobacillus is pitched in beer to create lactic acid, creating tartness in the palate. The addition of fresh fruit helps to balance the tartness to create a more harmonious drink.
