Two companies in Colchester County receive awards from NSLC

Two companies in Colchester County have received awards from the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC). 

Tatamagouche Brewing Company was named the 2016 Local Partner of the Year Award in the refreshment category at the NSLC’s Industry Day in Halifax yesterday. 

In the Ready to Drink Category, the Product of the Year Award was given to No Boats on Sunday cider, which is made by Peller Estates in Truro. 

The NSLC announced last month that craft beer sales grew by 48 percent to $3.2 million for the first quarter of the 2017-2018 fiscal year. 

A news release from the corporation says there are now 18 craft breweries in the province, with Nova Scotia craft beer accounting for over 63% of all craft beer sold at the NSLC.
