Good Robot Brewing Co. was not born out of a love for alcohol, or even brewing beer, says marketing manager Lindsey Davidson. “It was started because the co-founders felt like they were missing friendship and camaraderie in their everyday lives, so they wanted to provide a space where guests can gather and celebrate or just be together.” And Good Robot is definitely known for its taproom’s good vibes. But you don’t become a five-time gold winner for Best Craft Brewery on good vibes alone. The beer has to be something special, too. “Our beers are typically untraditional and a little bit quirky,” Davidson says. “We add a bit of a twist to our products so that they are a bit unique.” Good Robot upped its game last year by moving the brewery to a bigger, better facility in Elmsdale. “We have world-class equipment unlike anywhere else in Atlantic Canada, and that allows us to be a little bit more experimental with our products and we've just been able to see such an improvement in our beverages,” she says. Davidson recommends the Diablo, a Mexican lager with a hint of lime and jalapeno. “A lot of folks describe it as kind of like drinking nachos.” And if craft beer isn’t your jam, Good Robot just released a “very standar typical” lager that’s sure to please just about anybody.
