Heading to Halifax

I'm finally heading back to Halifax for a much needed visit, almost two years after moving back here to Ontario.

In two weeks I'm heading out there with my fiancee, and Cass Enright, to visit Garrison Brewery owner Brian Titus to discuss the importation of his beers and to check out Garrison's Firkin Friday's at Maxwell's Plum. There are also plans to indulge in the wonderfulness of the Henry House, hang out at the Propeller Brewing Co., drink at Rogue's Roost, check out the new brewpub on Spring Garden (can't remember the name), spend some time in the Labatt Atlantic Beer Institute, and much more. I know there are a bunch of readers from Halifax, so if your around for the second weekend in May, shoot me an email to see if we can hook-up for some pints.

There should be lots to write about upon returning, and I'm sure a lot of good old east coast beer will make the return flight with us.

It will be a fine time, no doubt. Looking forward to it.

Dude... I believe fiance only applies to the male of the species. Fiancée is a female you're betrothed too, but hey this is Toronto so its all game.

You should check out the beer selection at Premier Wines and Spirits. They have the Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout in stock. They also have a lot of the Rogue Ales.
Privately owned beer and wine shops! I can only dream.
