I was lucky enough to attend the launch party of Cape Breton's organic beer brewery BIG SPRUCE. Big Spruce Brewing is an organic hop farm and brewery based in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Jeremy, Rod & Paul were amazing to me, giving me free reign to both photograph the party and drink much of their fine brew!
For beer lovers, you gotta give this stuff a try! As of right now they sell two beers; "Kitchen Party Pale Ale" and "Cereal Killer Stout". I loved both of the beers but the Cereal Killer really grabbed me. Wonderful notes of coffee and subtle chocolate…incredible stuff and its made RIGHT HERE in Cape Breton. Their beers are available in 50 and 20 liter kegs, plus in 1.89 liter growler bottles. Seriously, keep your eye out for this stuff. They are having a Sydney Launch Party at Governor's in a few days, details here
