The following craft beers will be making an appearance:

Boxing Rock was founded in 2012 by two engineers with a passion for craft beer. They love beer for the challenge of designing a good one as much as for the pleasure of drinking it.

Like the building of a historical Saltbox, brewing small batches of quality beer is a deeply rooted expression of the heritage and craftsmanship found in Nova Scotia.

North Brewing Company is all about great beer and an alternative approach to business. We are proud to brew our beer in the communities of North End Halifax and Downtown Dartmouth.

Opened recently just outside of Bridgewater, N.S. They have started brewing with some self-built and self-improved gear, and their beer is available in the Bridgewater region.

Hell Bay beer is made using only premium malts, hops and yeast, our beer is handcrafted in small batchess to ensure maximum freshness.
