Halifax's Rogues Roost Bought By The Murphy Group

Well, just like the title says, hot on the heels of buying the Hart & Thistle, PEI's Murphy Group has also purchased Rogues Roost, a longtime-popular craft brew destination in Halifax. The article says they plan to maintain the staff and brewer, and hope to work on / build the brand, perhaps even growing it in Nova Scotia, PEI, and bottling their beer at the PEI Brewing Company in Charlottetown. They plan to stay at the current location, even after the upcoming development of the block.

  1. Who can forget the Red Rock or Abegweit Brewery on PEI. The fact that the beer was terrible was no surprise given the poor lonely brewer knew little or nothing about brewing. Seems a lot of these new start-ups have the same problem, with untrained brewers.
