NS Breweries Medal Haul at CBA’s

The momentum of the Nova Scotia craft beer scene continues to build as we hosted a very successful Canadian Brewing Awards and Conference. The weekend culminated with Nova Scotia craft breweries taking home nine medals at the Saturday evening awards gala at the newly opened Nova Centre.

Nova Scotia was led by triple medallists North Brewing and 2 Crows Brewing. Rounding out the Nova Scotia medals was Boxing Rock, Tatamagouche Brewing and first time winners Meander River.

The emerging Nova Scotia craft beer industry was on showcase all weekend and they didn’t disappoint. Hundreds of craft beer brewers, industry leaders, and observers from across he country took in everything Nova Scotia craft beer has to offer. There were special beer releases on tap throughout the city and the Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia made sure every attendee received a can or two of our community brew, Made Here By Us.

CBANS also co-hosted an event at the Auction House featuring Nova Scotia Beer and there was also a Nova Scotia craft beer event on Citadel Hill to showcase our craft, and our world class products. Our friends at Garrison Brewing also hosted delegates to a special evening of beer and entertainment at their facility on the Halifax waterfront.
