Beers

The following craft beers will be making an appearance:

Halifax’s most questionable brewery and taproom. We make beer for misfits because we don’t wanna grow up. And like the misfits, our beers are eccentric, experimental and untrue to style.

To create the best beer possible, we brew in small batches using all natural ingredients, no preservatives, no pasteurization, and never any filtration.

We don’t mind taking the long way around, which is why we decided to brew beer that takes patience, and perseverance. We brew beer the right way, from pure waters and simple ingredients.
