Propeller Beer – Halifax

Propeller Beer is perhaps the provinces best known craft brewery, and with good reason. From their widely appealing Honey Brown and Pilsner to their stronger Double IPA and Revolution Russian Imperial Stout, they have a beer for every taste. In October, they brew a special beer called Nocturn Dark, in celebration of the popular Halifax festival Nocturn Art By Night. Stop by their Gottingen street brewery to take a tour or pick up a refillable growler. If you aren’t into beer, Propeller also makes root beer and ginger soda.
