Horton Ridge Malt & Grain Company Launches Brewery & Taproom

HORTONVILLE, NS – A craft malt house that opened last spring in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley has announced the launch of an on-site nanobrewery and taproom.

As reported by Atlantic Canada Beer BlogHorton Ridge Malt & Grain Company opened its taproom last Thursday, and is pouring two of its own beers which owner Alan Stewart describes as follows:

The first is Malt House Ale, it is made of equal parts of our Two Row, Vienna & Munich malts. It is hopped with Summit. It is intentionally malty with a pronounced bready finish. The second is Rye’s Up Local, made from 50% PEI barley, 25% PEI wheat & 25% of rye that we grew ourselves. We would like to round out the pan Atlantic aspect of this beer by accessing a suitable hop from New Brunswick.

A third house beer will be added to the line-up soon, and the remaining three taps feature two dedicated to brands from Tatamagouche Brewing and Big Spruce Brewing, and a third featuring a rotation of beers from other breweries that use Horton Ridge malt.
