The 2019 Nova Scotia Craft Beer Week is upon us! Running April 25 – May 5, the Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia and its 46 member breweries are hosting events all across the province. Partnering with bars, restaurants, and retail shops, there will be something for everyone to celebrate locally-made beer. There are several signature events during the 11 day “week”, including the Inaugural Brewster Fest on Saturday April 27th, featuring beers and ciders brewed by female brewers (historically called brewsters) across the province (and guest female-owned brewery Port Rexton from Newfoundland!) at the Mayflower Curling Club. Also on that Saturday is TAPPED, the Third Annual Truro Craft Beer Fest, featuring 15 breweries from across the province bringing their best to the Hub of Nova Scotia. And closing out the week on May 4th is Full House, where more than 40 breweries will be taking over the Halifax Forum to sharing their beer with an emphasis on What’s New, and so many will be debuting new beers for the lucky attendees. Tickets for all of those events are still available, so we encourage you to grab a friend and get out to share in the fun!
Rather than simply copy/paste the full event list from the CBANS website, we wanted to put it into a couple of formats that we think will be a little more useful on the fly. Look below for the Calendar and Map that you can use to plan your beery week!
As always, if we’ve missed an Official (or unofficial but still relevant) event, please hit us up on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, we are @ACBeerBlog on all of them, and we’ll add it to our list. Use #NSCraftBeerWeek to stay on top of the latest goings ons. If you see us out at any of the events (including our Beer Trivia Night May 2nd at The Auction House) be sure to say, “Hi!” Cheers to Local Beers!
