That means that hops are ready to pick. And this year we were told of a bumper crop at Lazy Acres in Wolfville. So we got in the truck and drove out to pick some.
We got together with our good friends Peter and Josh at North Brewing Company in Halifax and collaborated to make a kick ass harvest beer. Many Hands Pale Ale is back. At 5.6% ABV, loads of Vienna Malt and of course over 75 pounds of fresh picked Chinook, Willamette and Cascade hops, all organically grown right here in Nova Scotia, what could be better?
With a beautifully floral nose, mild smooth bitterness accompanying a rich biscuity malt base, Many Hands Pale Ale is our tribute to the harvest.
Available now for a limited time at bars and restaurants in Halifax, and of course at our Brewery Retail Store in Shelburne, as well as our booths at the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market, and Alderney Farmers’ Market (Saturdays).
