Specializing in small batch production, and brewed using only the “bear essentials” to give customers an unforgettable taste experience of seasonally-crafted, high-quality Nova Scotian beer and cider. Proud to be an artisanal brewery, bringing their love of science + beer (and wood-fired pizzas) to Digby, Annapolis Royal, and Southwest Nova Scotia – (and now Bishop’s Cellar!)
This rich and complex brew is characterized by its deep amber color and intense aromas of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. On the palate, it delivers a smooth and full-bodied flavor profile, with notes of dark chocolate, raisins, and a hint of molasses. The finish is long and warming, with a subtle hint of alcohol that adds to its overall complexity. This beer is a great choice for those who appreciate strong, flavorful beers and have an interest in history.
