HALIFAX, NS – The Coast reports that a new nano-brewery will be opening soon in downtown Halifax.
Tidehouse Brewing is being opened by friends and homebrewers Shean Higgins and Peter Lionais in a 550-square-foot space at 2-5187 Salter Street near Barrington. The facility will include a small retail store selling 1 litre growlers, and Tidehouse beers will also be available on draught at local bars and restaurants.
In a profile on the Atlantic Canada Beer Blog, the partners indicate that they will be launching with four brands:
Golden Glacier– A pale ale hopped with a favourite hop variety of ours, Glacier. We’ve always said it is a really pleasant hop with a lovely balance of earth, citrus and wood.
The Copper – A darker amber ale with a hint of smokiness from Rauchmalt (beechwood smoked malt from Germany).
Mild Thing – A super sessionable (lower alcohol) malty beer following British traditions of a pub beer. Look out for casked versions that make your heart sing!
Like A Motorcyc-ale – We were inspired by our friends’ band Like A Motorcycle to make a black but sessionable rock n’ roll of a beer. Light body, earthy and dank hop flavours and dark as a midnight ride on your motorcycle through the woods.
Tidehouse Brewing is planning to launch in late October. For more details, see the brewery’s Facebook page.
