Nova Scotia's Thirst for Craft has Propeller Expanding


Propeller Brewing Company, Nova Scotia’s largest independently owned and operated brewery, is adding a 6800L fermenter to the Dartmouth Brewery. The brewery recently expanded operations to a new (larger) facility in Dartmouth. However, the recent Craft Beer boom in Nova Scotia has the brewery adding capacity.


Earlier in 2014 the NSLC reported an increase of 25.5% in the local craft beer segment. The most popular craft beer in Nova Scotia, Propeller IPA takes the lion’s share of Propeller’s sales but it’s the brewery’s only lager, Bohemian Style Pilsener that is driving the expansion. Propeller’s Brewmaster Josh Adler explains “lagers take time... in fact more than twice the time ales do to fully mature before packaging is possible, and we are not willing to compromise quality to achieve volume”. Propeller has seen growth throughout its portfolio and Bohemian Style Pilsener is on the fast track to become a top mover in the Nova Scotia Craft Beer scene. In addition to the new fermenter Propeller is commissioning a yeast propagator giving the brewer the ability to grow its own yeast. This is largely a cost saving measure but it also gives versatility and better quality control. “We’ll be the only micro brewery in Nova Scotia with this equipment and that gives us an edge in the industry in terms of quality” says Adler.

 

Propeller will have this most recent expansion completed this week just in time for spring “March is the turning point for beer sales in our region. In the coming weeks we will need to ramp up production to front load the NSLC distribution center to meet demand that comes with warmer weather” says Andrew Cooper Marketing Director at Propeller Brewing Company.

Propeller crafted this beer in honour of St. Patrick's Day. The brew will officially launch Thursday March 13th. Propeller's Brewmaster Josh Adler describes the beer as “a tribute to the classic red ales of Ireland”. The recipe brings together roasted malt sweetness with an earthy hoppiness for a full flavoured yet balanced brew. “As brewers we're always looking to the season for inspiration for our brews. With its darker colour and easy drinking profile, this Irish Red really speaks to this time of year” adds Adler. Andrew Cooper Marketing Director at Propeller Brewing Company says “Whether you’re Irish or “Irish for a day”, this beer will not disappoint”.


Brewers' tasting notes: 
•    With an ABV of 5 percent, Propeller Irish Red is a full-bodied yet refreshing ale with a complex malt aroma and character.
•    Pale, Crystal, Roasted and Melanoidin malts give this brew its dark ruby red appearance and complex flavours.
•    Willamatte hops balance the malt flavours with a subtle touch of woody hop character. 


Propeller Irish Red Ale will be available throughout March in 650ml single serve bottles and Growlers at Propeller Cold Beer Stores. Single serve bottles will also be available at select private retailers and look for Propeller Irish Red on draught at a few pubs and restaurants in Nova Scotia.
