Just when I thought I was running low on variety (I was getting down to only beers I'm trying to age a little), my wife and I had to make another
trip to Halifax. Luckily, Halifax has way more variety than PEI, and always has a few new things to pick from. We went to an NSLC store, Premier (of course), Bishop's Cellar (for Sea Level's beers), and a new one to me, Harvest Wines & Spirits (well worth the stop - and buy something in the seafood side first... you'll get 10% off!).
So... what did I get to fill up the basement for a while and keep the ol' blog going?
