North Brewing started in the North-End of Halifax, Nova Scotia under the name Bridge Brewing, but have since changed names to North Brewing. In the spring of 2019 they moved to much larger new brewery on Portland St. in Dartmouth. With a strong commitment to environmental responsibility, North Brewing strives to be a zero emissions craft brewery while producing exceptional, hand-crafted beers.

Tasting Notes

Little Beast has subtle, but enjoyable aromas of citrus zest, water cracker, and subtle floral notes. The palate drinks bright with a subtle hint of light malts. The addition of rice in the boil helps create an even lighter mouthfeel and easy going drinkability.

Method

Originally brewed for the North End Runners it was hopped with Huell Melon to 10 IBUs, and features an addition of salt to the boil. North wants you to think of it as a “post-run recovery beer”. This Lagered Ale is also brewed with rice in the mash which, after fermentation helps create a light body and crisp mouthfeel.

Our Thoughts

Kölsch styles of beer are typically light and refreshing, which makes sense given the creation of the beer was a “post-run quencher” for the North End Runners group! However, this particular lagered ale gives more flavour at first sip- I always find myself picking up on notes of faint maltiness with a burst of citrus. Although I can’t directly recommend drinking Little Beast after a jog, it would be hard to refuse one!
