Like the building of a historical Saltbox house, brewing small batches of quality beer is a deeply rooted expression of heritage and craftmanship found in Nova Scotia. In those days, most brewing and drinking was done in the home. The resurgence of craft brewing marks a renaissance of the kind of local brewing that took place before the industrial revolution – when making beer was a standard household chore as integral as baking bread.
At Saltbox Brewing Company, we celebrate the development of the skills and artistry required to create fresh, full-flavoured beer for consumption by the local community. Our motto: “Think social, and drink local.”
