We are honoured and humbled to announce that two of our beers have brought home gold medals in their categories, as well as an honorable mention for Beer of the Year at the 2018 Atlantic Canada Beer Awards this past weekend in Halifax!
Our Seven Years Pale Ale took home the gold medal in the Pale Ale category, as well as receiving an honorable mention for Beer of the Year! Our second gold medal was awarded to our Cocoa Envy Chocolate Porter in the Porter/Stout category!
