Craft Beer Week Humpday – Lots of events on tap.

We are half way through the 2019 Nova Scotia Craft Beer Week and things are just ramping up, leading to our main event on Saturday, Full House.

Today, May 1, we have four events involving axes, trivia, and special tastings and releases from two of our more well known breweries, Big Spruce and Tatamagouche.

Halimac is hosting Axes and Ales, where they will have a broad assortment of local craft beers on tap and $25 will get you a pint of craft beer with an hour of axe throwing. We are excited to have Axes and Ales as part of the Craft Beer Week roster of events for the first time!

At 7pm, Propeller Brewing Co. will be hosting Beer Trivia Night at their Gottingen location. Three rounds of beer-focused questions with topics like beer styles, regions, slogans, mascots, home-brewing, and even a beer-themed music round! Prizes for each round, and a prize for the overall high score. Unlike other trivia nights, this one is every human for themselves, so bring your A-Game!

This event will be a great warm up for the annual AC Beer Blog Trivia Night at Auction House tomorrow night.

Rounding out today are a couple of special release and tasting events with Big Spruce Brewing and Tatamagouche Brewing Company.

At 4pm at Rockhead, they will be joined by Big Spruce Brewing brewer & owner Jeremy White and Big Spruce Ambassador & Beer Sommelier Stephen Heisler. Stop in for samples, swag, giveaways & more! FREE Big Spruce glass to the first 50 customers to purchase 2 – 650ml bottles or fill an 8pk carrier with Big Spruce 473ml cans!

Limited quantities of these varietals in 650ml bottles will be available for sale during the event!

Also at 4pm at Westside, Tata Brewmaster & Owner Matt Kenny with Sales Rep Hayden Tilt will be serving up samples of brews not available in the HRM!
