Big Spruce in Nyanza is getting ready to release a new beer this week, with 100% local ingredients. The beer called ‘100’ is made with yeast, water, hops, rye and barley all from within the Province.
Brewer Jeremy White says this is the first attempt at a 100 beer to his knowledge in the Province. White explains that some ingredients were easier to find than others:
White says find the yeast proved to be most difficult, but he ended up finding some on a wild cherry within his property.  The beer will be available in select liquor stores through the province, and at the brewery in Nyanza starting on Saturday.

A Victoria County craft brewer is releasing a new beer with quite the bite. Big Spruce Brewing of Nyanza is releasing a seasonal IPA called ‘Tag, You’re It’, in partnership with Halifax based Ocean Tracking Network; a group who tags and tracks marine mammals.
Jeremy White is owner of Big Spruce and was looking through the winter for a chance to partner and help out a local environmental or conservation group. He says that pairing with the OTN is a perfect match for his brewery:
White says he hopes to have ‘Tag, You’re it” released by early August which will feature the popular mosaic and citra hops.
