A traditional English porter with a slightly higher alcohol content (5.5%) that’s touched with natural sweetness and vanilla flavours.
Miley Citrus (double IPA)
Another Garrison test batch. This strong, citrus forward beer promises hints of fresh peeled orange, tangerine and sweet orange marmalade aromas and flavours.
Keefe’s Irish Stout
Tucked away on Stairs Street, the city’s longest operating brewery makes a collection of solid traditional beers. This one pours black and offers a hint of sweetness.
Spindrift Brewing Co.
This isn’t your dad’s lager; it’s fruity, piney, and assertively hoppy.
Thistle Dew (Scottish ale)
Wayfarers’ Ale Society
Port Williams, N.S.
Wayfarers formed in 2012 when some craft beer lovers got together to brew their own lightly hopped beer as an alternative to industrial suds and heavily hopped craft beers. The results are now occasionally on tap around the city at specialty liquor stores and bars. Find it tonight at Bishop’s Cellar.
