Our Rare Bird Craft Beer is inspired by people of rare character – the neighbours who have shaped our home of Guysborough into the seaside village it is today. For centuries, they used their creative minds, hardworking hands and generous hearts to build a better life for their families and community. They’re people like Nicolas Denys, a pioneering Acadian who created Atlantic Canada’s first commercial brewery in 1659, right where we make our Rare Bird Craft Beer today. We’re proud to carry on Denys’ legacy and brew our beer for those with rare character.
Our commitment to Atlantic Canada’s oldest brewer means we handcraft our beer in small batches using no preservatives. We combine fresh ingredients with pure Glanbùrn artesian water for optimal flavour, creating year-round and seasonal brews that stay true to our constant values of good taste over time. Each bottle captures the history, flavour and rare character of our home on Nova Scotia’s remote Eastern Shore.
