HALIFAX, NS – Garrison Brewing has released the third annual edition of Spruce Beer, a popular winter seasonal inspired by Canada’s brewing history:
North America’s oldest beer style brewed with local spruce and fir tips, blackstrap molasses and dates. Dark amber and brown colouring. Aroma is a comforting mix of spruce boughs, caramel malts, molasses and dates. Complex and full-bodied, it balances the crisp bitterness of spruce and fur gum with the warming flavours of molasses and bittersweet chocolate.
Thiis year’s vintage of Spruce Beer debuted at the Garrison retail store this morning at 9:00 AM local time, with the now customary line-up of fans waiting to make a purchase. It will remain on sale at the Garrison shop and all private liquor stores in Nova Scotia while supplies last.
