With fall being a beautiful time of year in Nova Scotia, it’s not hard to find a reason to get out and enjoy yourself. Nova Scotia has played host to various Oktoberfest celebrations across the province for decades. The Craft Beer industry in Nova Scotia has been doing some pretty great things, resulting in celebrations better than ever!
On January 23, they celebrated one year of being in business. The next day, they won the Halifax Chamber of Commerce award for New Business of the Year. It's been a busy 12 months for the founders of North Brewing, formerly Bridge Brewing.
It's fresh, unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Some beer geeks call this smooth brew "a living beer." Some brewers call it an art form.
For the uninitiated, cask conditioned ale is a beer that starts brewing in the fermenter; then it's carefully transferred to a cask for 1-2 weeks, where it ferments a second time. You can't test the beer until the fermentation is complete. When it works, the result is brew that offers subtle carbonation and full, complex flavours. As a beer geek myself, all I can say is - try it. You'll get it.
