Making a list, checking it twice: our conservation colla*beer*ation with Big Spruce Brewing ranks among top beers in NS

Our collaboration with Big Spruce Brewing, Tag, You’re It!has made 902BrewCast’s top picks for 2017! “The IPA with bite” has been a summer favourite in Halifax, OTN headquarters, thanks to Jeremy White, owner and alesmith at Big Spruce. Tag blends a mutual love of oceans and the environment, supporting shark research and conservation to the tune of 50 cents per can sold.

Big Spruce Brewing Co’s Tag, You’re it! IPA

Big Spruce paired up with Ocean Tracking Network for this one and we loved how it played with both the juicy and bitter sides of the style. They crafted a beer that bit and gave back, with 50 cents from each can going to OTN for research, conservation and public awareness!

All three members of the BrewCast selected their 10 favourite local brews of 2017.

Private retailers in the HRM also supported the cause with an additional 25 cents per can. The initative has generated over $10,000 for OTN’s blue shark tracking studies, the Marine Animal Response Society, which worked tirelessly towards investigating right whale deaths this summer, and Sharks of the Atlantic Research and Conservation Coalition, which brings Halifax’s expertise to global shark hot-spots where research is critical to preserving ecosystems and coastal livelihoods.
