From Nova Scotia with Love

Every year the province of Nova Scotia presents the city of Boston with its official Christmas tree – a “thank you” to the people of Boston for its quick aid after the devastating Halifax explosion on December 6, 1917. To honor this tradition and deep bond between these two regions, we brewed this abbey-style ale with the help of Nova Scotia’s Big Spruce Brewing. With Oak and Cherrywood smoked malts, a touch of spruce tips, and an extended conditioning in Glen Breton Single Malt Whiskey barrels from Cape Breton Island, it’s both layered and complex with notes of dried fruit, vanilla, wood smoke, and caramel.
