Rare Bird Spruce Ale
This heritage ale takes us back to our Maritime brewing traditions in 1659 when spruce was used to flavour beer, a staple both on shore and on the sailing ships that came into Guysborough harbour. Today, our hand-picked local spruce buds are added to the hops in the brewing process, creating a crisp, medium body ale with a refreshing spruce nose that captures the arrival of spring on the Authentic Seacoast.
Any ale or lager made with herbs, spices or vegetables. The additive should be distinctive in the aroma. See beer description for flavor. Body, color, hop character and strength vary depending on the type of spice, herb or vegetable used.
