Local Microbreweries Win Big At Atlantic Canadian Beer Awards

The Atlantic Canadian Beer Awards is an annual event that gives breweries and cider houses from across the Atlantic provinces an opportunity to showcase their finest beer and ciders in a competition. In 2017, 50 breweries and cider houses submitted a total of 321 beer and ciders for a blind tasting by a panel of 20 certified judges and beer industry professionals.
