This past March I posted and a Q & A with Peter Burbridge who was working towards opening Bridge Brewing Co. Things are progressing well and Peter is hoping to open his new brewery next month. Peter recently took a short break from renovating and brewing to answer a few additional questions:
Atlantic Canada Beer Blogger (ACBB): What is the address of the location of the brewery?
Peter Burbridge (PB): 2576 Agricola St.
ACBB: What is your target opening date?
PB: We are hoping to be open in December if all goes well. We are working hard to finish the renovations to the facade and the storefront.
ACBB: Are you planning any other beers other than the Yardstick Ale for the opening?
PB: Yes, we are brewing our interpretation of a Farmhouse Ale, which will be on tap at the Brooklyn Warehouse. We are also brewing a Belgian Blond for Gus’ pub across the street from us. Gus’ is the second oldest bar in Halifax, so we are quite excited to do a co-branded beer with them.
ACBB: Are you still planning on selling via 660 mL bomber bottles, kegging and growlers?
PB: Yes, that is still the plan. We won’t be doing any bottling initially, but plan to start bottling within a month or two of opening.
ACBB: Do you have any keg accounts signed up that you would like to share?
PB: Yes, we have accounts with the Brooklyn Warehouse and Gus’ pub. We will also be on tap at Mother’s Pizza once that opens on Young and Agricola.
ACBB: Any other information you’d like to pass along?
PB: Just that we are getting really excited for the launch and can’t wait to get our beers out there!
