Garrison Brewing of Halifax, Nova Scotia launched its winter seasonal Spruce Beer today, and according to the brewery’s Twitter feed, it sold 24 bottles of the brew in the first 20 minutes of business today.
Unfortunately, the beer is only available in Halifax, so the rest of us throughout the Great White North are out of luck, but it sounds like Nova Scotians are getting a bit of a treat from Garrison. The beer was brewed with freshly-cut spruce tips that were collected by the Garrison brewers.
It seems like it’s a time for historic beer styles. First Beau’s Bog-Water, and now Garrison’s Spruce Beer.
If you get your hands on Garrison’s festive brew, let me know your thoughts, ’cause I won’t be gettin’ any.
