Shame on You!

Published by henry on Tue, 08/02/2016 - 13:02

Have you noticed that real Nova Scotia Craft Beer is often paired side by side with those other "Premium" brands? We think that's a deliberate attempt to blur the lines between authentic #NSCraftbeer and other beverages that are attempting to impersonate and co-opt #NSCraftbeer.

Well we teamed up with our good friends at Big Spruce Brewing​ and made a doozy. Shame-On-You IPA is a super aromatic brew that looks like "the other guys" but is true NS Craft Beer. It's packed with copious amounts of late addition hoppy greatness, and dry hopped with more of the same.

It's a decidedly un-premium beer.

It is being released Thursday Aug 4th at both breweries, and will debut in Halifax at our table at Halifax Seaport Beerfest on Friday Aug 5th, and then at select NS craft beer serving establishments this weekend.

We hope that this beer also raises awareness for those that sell beer in Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia Craft Beer should be recognized so that beer buyers that want to keep their beer money here in the province, aren't fooled into thinking they have.
