WHAT DO YOU THINK??? Does Antigonish really need a brewpub?

Okay folks, it's crunch time. We're getting closer to pinning down our location and getting our funding in place, but right now WE NEED YOUR HELP! We believe Antigonish really needs a cozy little brewpub with great beer, great food, great service, and great atmosphere. But maybe we're wrong? We need to be able to demonstrate this demand, assuming it really exists, to possible lenders and investors. This is where you come in: If you also think Antigonish could do with a proper cozy little pub, please take a few minutes to fill out our anonymous online survey and let us know! Feel free to forward it to friends, relatives, coworkers, and anyone else you think might be interested. The more responses we get, the better.

A new season, and a new brewing system...?

Well, it's officially fall, I guess. The air is certainly crisp, and the nights are unquestionably cooler. And as you can see, our Cascade hops are pretty much ready to be harvested!  In fact, Terry's latest IPA was brewed using some of these very hops - we're anxiously awaiting the first sip...

Not a bad crop for their first year, but we're looking forward to checking out the notes from last month's Hops Workshop in Cornhill, NB. A friend who attended reported it was a day crammed with excellent information, and should help us increase our yield in the coming years.
