We try the year round Hop Yard Ale, which is dry hopped as compared to their seasonal 3 Fields Harvest. The big difference between the two is how this one is what I would consider a very hoppy, almost a hop bomb. However, if you are a fan of IPA, this might appeal to you. […]
We try the latest edition of Garrison Brewing 3 Fields Harvest, Wet-Hopped strong ale at 6.4%. Freshly picked hops from Nova Scotia farms and added to the kettle within 24 hours. Hops from Meander River Farm, Wysmykal Farm, Ross Farm Museum, Fiddlehop Farms
We try the latest from Propeller Brewing – a Munich style Dark Lager, in celebration of Nocturne Art at Night, an annual evening visual arts festival in downtown Halifax on october 13 2012.

We give this a quick taste. If you live in Canada, this tastes like maple cookies.

Quick taste review of Garrison Brewing’s PiLs. Released in early 2011, This Pilsner was made from Czech Saaz hops, German lager yeast and Bluenose spirit to create this crisp, refreshing brew. “Na zdravi!” (To your Health!)

This is the second year that the race route has been at CFB Shearwater and along Cow Bay road. Some segments are along sidewalk, but mostly […]
Nice big 8km hike along a wilderness trail, just minutes outside of Halifax. Decided to attempted the smallest hiking loop in the Bluffs, called Pot Lake loop. We parked the car at the closest parking lot and walked about 400m to the actual trailhead. We followed the BLT trail where you can either continue to […]
