1. Sid’s Cider Wild Blueberry
The newest member of the ShipBuilders family re-imagines some of Stutz Cider’s familiar flavours—like this sweet treat Wild Blueberry, Crisp Apple or Chai Spice—in a snazzier, single-serve (and super affordable) bottle. This one’s for those who like to blush. $2.99

2. Bulwark Hopped Cider
Because cider isn’t just a counterpoint to beer, New Ross’ Bulwark Cider plays around with cascade and comet hops with this one, adding them to the mix post-fermentation to make for a hoppy, citrusy blend, balanced by the apples. $5

3. Noggins Cider Brilliant Pear
The province’s centuries-old produce boss, Greenwich’s Noggins Corner, puts its fruit resources to good booze with its line of ciders. This almost water-pale (it’s pretty much just as drinkable) sparkling drink pairs pears with its heirloom apples, resulting in a dry alternative to the classic. $11.99

4. ShipBuilders Cider
This ship starts in Berwick, our very own Big Apple. The dry, crisp, less-sweet Stutz sibling pays tribute to hardworking craftspeople with its refreshing brew, packing an easy-drinking punch at 6 percent. $3.99

5. No Boats on Sunday
A thirst-quenching, medium dry cider brewed and bottled in Nova Scotia’s hub town, Truro. Light and fruity, the summery No Boats celebrates the right to chill taking its name from ye old No Boats on Sunday policy (AKA the Take A Damn Day Off policy) in Halifax’s port. $3.99

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
