The Boxing Rock “Test Kitchen” is a 1-barrel brewhouse that has been installed adjacent to the Local Source catering kitchen, and will be used to brew seasonal and experimental beers that will be available for growler fills in the retail shop, alongside bottles of core and limited release products from the main brewery in Shelburne.
“Creating a local food hub has always been the goal of Local Source,” says owner Sean Gallagher in a statement. “This partnership is an extension of that goal, connecting customers to local quality products and producers.”
“This was exactly the type of partnership we were hoping for when we looked to expand into Halifax,” adds Boxing Rock co-owner Emily Tipton. “We share similar values around sustainability, growing the local economy and enhancing local food culture in Nova Scotia.”
The new Boxing Rock bottle shop is now open inside Local Source Market at 2530 Agricola Street in the North End of Halifax. An official grand opening will take place on September 1st, with free gifts for the first customers.
