Black Angus IPA
The largest natural giant ever recorded was a man named Black Angus from Cape Breton. He would dead lift anchors to pass the time. If you’re a giant struggling to open this seemingly tiny bottle:
1. Hold it between the thumb and index finger of your left hand, being careful not to crush it.
2. Gently flick the cap off with the index finger of your right hand.
3. Enjoy the mouthful of ale, a delicious citrusy mix of Chinook, Centennial, Cascade and Citra hops.
4. Repeat as desired
Stirling: the German beer named after a Scottish Earl. The same Earl who gave Nova Scotia its flag. Confused? Don’t be. At Breton, we do what we please. In this case, a light, refreshing Hefeweizen (half wheat) beer that’s 60% wheat, 40% barley, brewed to let the clove and banana aromas kick arse. If we want to name it after a Brit or wear white after labour day, we will. So go ahead. Colour outside the lines. Drink the German beer brewed in Canada named after a Scotsman.
Sons of Hector Brown Ale
Oh we, the Sons of Hector
Who fought the barren seas
Who arrived here on these foreign shores
Pushed down on bended knees
Too few of us did leave Lochbroom
And fewer still who landed
Not a provision shared amongst us
In a new world were we stranded
This legacy we leave to you
Our banner yours to carry
The fighting spirit of the Highlands
And an ale for making merry.
There’s a bit of bite to Redcoat. That makes sense, really. There was a bit of bite to the Irishmen who stood up to the Redcoats, the British soldiers who invaded their lands. Those Irishmen were rebels. They did things their own way. They feared no one. We appreciate those qualities. So we’ve brewed Redcoat the Irish way, hopped for balance and drinkability. May it be the pint that settles your quarrels.
