A long-time family farm, Meander River Brewery will continue the farm philosophy of sustainability and environmental responsibility. A few early eco-initiatives will include using spent grain as compost and feed, and using excess water from the brewery for irrigation of their hops – which will be grown on-site.
As of May 17, visitors can purchase refillable growlers, taste the beer line-up, and take tours of the brewery and hopyard. They are the first Nova Scotia brewery to offer a community shared brewery program (A CSB – like a CSA, but with beer shares). There are only limited CFB shares available. Check out their website (below) ASAP if you want in!
Their beer is currently available in 1L growlers. It costs $11.50 for the first growler and fill, and $6 for each refill.
