Together We Brew NS Beerfest – Hops at the Harbour

Together We Brew Craft Beer Festival is presented by the Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia as their annual celebration of Nova Scotian craft beer and a major fund-raiser to support the aims and objectives of the Association members.  The events offer the opportunity to sample products from over 40 participating breweries right on the harbour and is part of the second segment of our 6-part Craft Brewing and Distilling Series.


Together We Brew Craft Beer Festival brought craft beer lovers from all over the Maritimes together at the largest taproom for local craft beer in the province.  Hosted by The Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia, this event treated festival goer’s taste buds to delicious samples of craft beer from breweries from across the province at the Halifax Waterfront at Pavilion 22.

This year’s events on Saturday, April 6 offered two sessions with two ticket options, General Admission, and VIP.  The VIP gave attendees an extra hour for each session to share stories with local brewmasters, enjoy live music & catch up with friends all while discovering our incredible local craft beer scene.

Together We Brew Craft Beer Festival offered a wide selection of over 40 amazing breweries from all over Nova Scotia for you to sample like Tatamagouche Brewing Company, which is a family-owned microbrewery located in the heart of Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia that has been brewing amazing beer since 2014 and Two Islands Brewing, which is a small craft brewery producing easy drinking approachable beers and ales using only the finest ingredients with no added preservatives. That was established in 2018 by a group of community-minded citizens who believed in the added value of locally produced food and beverages and the need to compliment the natural and cultural attractions of Parrsboro with a meeting place to socialize with friends, neighbours, and visitors to our area. 

If you missed ‘Together We Brew’, we recommend that you get it on your list for next year to experience an amazing day of sampling a fantastic selection of craft beverages on the Halifax waterfront making the festival vibe and venue incredible and something that every craft beer enthusiast needs to experience!
