From the pioneering breweries of historic downtown Halifax to the distinct merroir of rural Prince Edward Island, from the banks of New Brunswick's St. John River to the far-flung iceberg alleys of Newfoundland, East Coast Crafted features behind-the-scenes profiles of each of Atlantic Canada's nearly 70 breweries and brewpubs. With a fun, narrative style, authors Christopher Reynolds (Cicerone, beer judge, co-owner, Stillwell beer bar) and Whitney Moran (beer journalist and editor) get to know the people behind the pints and offer readers dozens of recommendations as they explore their favourite suds from across the region. The result is the first comprehensive guide to Atlantic Canada's evolving craft beer industry, an ideal read for beer tourists and local champions of Canada's fastest-growing craft beer-producing region.
Features a foreword from Canada's preeminent beer writer, Stephen Beaumont ( World Atlas of Beer ), and over 60 colour photos from celebrated photographer Jessica Emin ( The Wine Lover's Guide to Atlantic Canada ).
