Uncle Leo’s Brewery Opening Soon in Rural Nova Scotia


LYONS BROOK, NS – The Atlantic Canada Beer Blog and the Pictou Advocate both report that a new nanobrewery will be opening soon near Pictou, Nova Scotia.

Uncle Leo’s Brewery is being launched in the village of Lyons Brook by Karl and Rebecca Whiffen, with brewmaster Greg Nash of Hart & Thistle and Rockbottom Brewpub consulting on the recipes.

Named after Karl’s uncle Leo Whiffen, who made his own beer when Karl was growing up in rural Newfoundland, Uncle Leo’s will be opening with two flagship brands – a Red Ale and an IPA – with production alternating between the two as demand dictates.

The first batch of Uncle Leo’s Red Ale was brewed earlier this week, and the Whiffens hope to have it available for sale by the end of June.
