Fun fact: Did you know Nova Scotia is home to more craft breweries per capita than any other province in the country? To celebrate, the Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia hosts the largest celebration of craft beer in eastern Canada – Nova Scotia Craft Beer Week!

With over 20 events taking place all over the province, many of our Taste of Nova Scotia members are working hard to give you an experience they are proud of. Their passion for craft beer is well-shared, as the fourth annual Craft Beer Week brings people together from all over Canada, as well as the United States.

From learning about the origins of craft beer at Battery Park Beer Bar to taking moonlit sampling tours at White Point Beach Resort, there’s something for everyone’s taste at the 2018 Nova Scotia Craft Beer Week celebration!

Events occur all over the province, starting Thursday, April 26 and continuing until Sunday, May 6.
