The Breton Brewing Company is located in Sydney, Nova Scotia. The tasting room is open for brewery tours, growler fills, pints, and entertainment! Breton has quickly become a staple not only in the hometown of Sydney, but also across the province for their offerings of well made everyday craft beer. They brew a core lineup of hoppy ales, crisp lagers, and some fruited sours, and you’ll sometime catch them with a mixed fermentation barrel aged beer from time to time.
Island Time lager is light in colour and light on aromatics, but that’s how it should be! This style is all about easy and approachable flavours that you don’t have to overthink. Aromas of bread dough, water cracker, and subtle spicy notes that go into a palate with similar flavours, lively carbonation, and a crisp refreshing finish.
This is styled from a Munich Helles lager, one of the Germany most popular and influential styles. Brewed with mostly Pilsner malt for maximum bready doughy flavours and hopped with traditional German style hops for subtle spicy floral aromas. Island Time is lagered for weeks at cold temperatures to created a very clean and crisp texture.
Even if you have never visited Cape Breton in the summer, it’s easy to imagine yourself standing on Ingonish Beach or hiking the Skyline Trail with the Island Time lager in your hand. I believe a lager should be straightforward and light- exactly what the Island Time provides! Crisp and refreshing with just the slightest bready flavour.
