Born and brewed in Cape Breton, Big Spruce Brewing has been concocting its two varieties of craft beer since the beginning of March. After selling it’s first beer in house on April 1, the company has been spreading the love throughout Cape Breton ever since. Now, this brewery newbie is kicking things up a notch by expanding its horizons to the Halifax and Dartmouth areas.

The official launch will take place at the Dartmouth location of The Wooden Monkey (40 Alderney Drive) on Saturday, April 20 at 7pm. There will be live music provided by Cape Breton native, Kevin Mullins and his band and, of course, free 4 ounce samples of the two new brews.

You’ll have your choice between the two flagships Big Spruce Brewing has conjured up. One is a dry, hops pale ale called Kitchen Party Pale Ale (no surprise this one is brewed in Cape Breton). The other is an oatmeal stout aptly named Cereal Killer. Following the launch, you’ll be able to find these suds on tap at The Wooden Monkey, The Argyle and Chives Canadian Bistro. If you ever find yourself out in Cape Breton you can pop into the brewery and buy it by the growler. Bottoms up, beer-lovers.
