The Coast - Halifax's Weekly Newspaper: The Brewers Speak

Christine Beevis, a TAPS The Beer Magazine regular contributor (Carboys In My Laundry Room - Homebrew Section), has a great piece in The Coast, Halifax's free weekly newspaper titled "The Brewers Speak," part of a Beer Guide the newspaper features today.

Beevis emailed me a week ago to let me know that she was working on this project for the paper, and this morning she notified me that the story is now online for all to view. And it's a great read.

In the piece, Beevis introduces readers to all the men brewing in Nova Scotia in interview style format, similar to what I do here with the "Meet the Brewers..." Eight brewers in total were interviewed and eight questions relating to their brewing career were answered.

Brewers Involved:
Bobby Zacharias (Propeller) - (Bobby has taken over the head brewer position since Don Helms moved to Ontario to manage the brewhouse at Kichiseppi Brewing Co.)
- Brett Mason (Sleeman)
Daniel Girard (Garrison)
Greg Nash (Hart & Thistle)
- Kevin Keefe (Granite)
- Lorne Romano (Rogue's Roost) - (Look for Craig Pinhey's profile of Romano and Rogue's Roost in the spring issue of TAPS)
- Randy Lawrence (Sea Level Brewing)
- Graham Kendall (Alexander Keith's - Labatt)
