STELLARTON, NS – The Atlantic Canada Beer Blog reports that a new brewery is getting set to open soon in Stellarton, a small town near New Glasgow in Nova Scotia.
Backstage Brewing is being opened by A.J. Leadbetter, his wife Beth, and her parents, Lynn and Wayne MacDonald in a building at 37 Bridge Ave. that housed a paint shop owned by Leadbetter’s family until it was damaged by fire in 2015.
Now repaired and refurbished, the facility will include a brewery as well as a taproom that will pour several Backstage brands and a selection of beers from other Nova Scotia breweries, as well as local wine and cider.
Beers planned to be available at opening or soon after include the following:
Daydreamer is a pale ale that comes in at 4.8% and 21 IBU. Hangover Helper is an American Pale, 5.3% and 40 IBU; light-bodied and packed with flavor. Headliner is big juicy IPA. It’s 6.3% and 60 IBU. Gemini is a DIPA. 8% and 100+ IBU. It’s big! It’s bitter! And surprisingly easy to drink! Nunmoar Black IPA is 6.6% and 75 IBU. Roasted, Hoppy, and Black. How much more black can it be? None.
