NEWPORT, NS – A hops farm in rural Nova Scotia has announced the opening of its own brewery.
Hill Top Hops was founded in 2016 by John Peters and his family in Scotch Village, a small community in the West Hants district. After two years of supplying hops to other breweries, Peters decided to branch out into using the hops in his own beers, and has launched the Hill Top Hops Brewhouse in Newport, approximately 9 km southwest of the farm.
Currently open on a “by chance” basis while preparing for its official opening on January 19th, the taphouse and brwery currently has six beers available by the glass and for growler fills, including Avondale Cream Ale, Tidal Bore Blond, Hants County Proud Pale Ale, Cashmere Pilsner, Hop Storm IPA, and Red Tale Red Ale.
Hill Top Hops Brewhouse is located at 7232 Highway 14, adjacent to the Tidal Bore Farm Market. For more details, see the Hill Top Hops website.
