Annapolis Cider Releases New 'Something Different'

(Wolfville, NS) - Annapolis Cider Company have released their latest 'Something Different". "Raspberry and Rooibos" is a 6.7% ABV unfiltered, sparkling cider crafted from a unique blend of dry cider, fermented over red delicious apple skins, with fresh juice from local, handpicked raspberries. It's then cold-steeped with loose leaf red rooibos tea from Just Us! Coffee. The apple skins lend tannin and structure to this scarlet-hued cider that showcases the bright aroma and flavour of fresh raspberries and is rounded out by mellow hints of earthy rooibos.
$0.50 from each refill of Raspberry and Rooibos will support the Wolfville Children's Centre, an organization with the philosophy that every child is entitled to quality care.

Roof Hound Releases Hoppy Seconds Pale Ale

(Digby, NS) - Roof Hound Brewing released an experimental Pale Ale called Hoppy Seconds. The beer earned the moniker because Roof Hound reused the massive amounts of dry hops used in their Big Stink IPA. Les Barr says Hoppy Seconds is easier drinking than the Big Stink but still has that citrus and savoury flavour and creamy mouth feel. Check it out the 6% ABV beer now at the brewery and select taps.
