After falling in love with Cape Breton, Jeremy White bought a farm outside of Nyanza online without viewing it and Big Spruce Brewing was born. Little did Jeremy know that his small brewery would skyrocket into such quick success, becoming a prominent brew in the Nova Scotia craft beer scene.

Big Spruce Brewing is unique in that they only brew unfiltered, unpasteurized beer using certified organic hops.The organic beers are sold in refillable 1.80-liter growler bottles at the brewery or in cans at NSLC.

Starting with two flagship beers: Cereal Killer Oatmeal Stout and Kitchen Party Pale Ale which are still year-round favourites, Jeremy thought that they would sell 50 growlers a week. Within the first few months of opening, there was already a need to expand and the brewery has seen exponential growth ever since all thanks to delicious beer.

Jeremy will share his experience moving to a new place and starting a business. He will explore how Big Spruce has grown and what he has learned along the way.

TecSocial is a monthly meeting for those with an interest in technology and entrepreneurship. It is a free event and is open to the public. Big Spruce beer will be available. Appetizers compliments of our partner Innovacorp.
