I like to drink beer, and I decided I never wanted to run out! So what’s a feller supposed to do? I built a brewery of course!

According to local folklore, Boxing Rock is where bickering seamen were left by their captain to sort out their differences. The choice: box until only one could return to the ship or shake hands and share a beer. Either way, there are only a few short hours until high tide. We say drink up.

Independently born, crafted by passion. Ask about the people behind our beer, and you’ll find the answer none too difficult. Ask what it was that started us on our journey, and what you’ll find isn’t the story of a brewery. It’s the story of a place. It’s the story of a people. Cape Breton has always been as harsh as it is beautiful, as barren as it is rich. Anything wondrous growing here, does so more out of determination than fertile soil. And so when it came time to name our brewery and the beers we serve, there was only one option. The brewery is named for the land it hails from. The beer, for the legends that have made our Island what it is. Every sip represents our homage to a longstanding Cape Breton tradition: to make greatness in the most unexpected of places.

What makes us FirkinStein? The 2 of us come from different backgrounds and have much different personalities. This, for us, has been a major asset when making beer. We push each other to do the best we can and our brewery proves that our dedication and hardwork can make anything happen. We built our brewery instead of buying it, it is built from scratch, using reclaimed items from all sorts of places. Our beer is made with the same attention to detail, try our Firkin good beer!

Our brewery is central to our farming philosophy of sustainability and environmental responsibility. Our livestock reclaim and prepare our land for our hopyard and lavender expansion, our brewery produces spent grain which is used as compost and as feed for our livestock, and the excess water from the brewery is recycled for irrigation of our hops which we use in our beer – completing the circle. Beer tastings and tours of the brewery and hopyard are offered for our visitors to experience our passion for craft beer and the beer making process. We are also the first Nova Scotia brewery to offer a CSB (community shared brewery) program for beer lovers who want our local brewery to succeed while at the same time be recognized for their support.

They use their creative minds, hardworking hands and generous hearts to build a better life for their families and community. They are undeterred by challenges both grand and small. Actions show their leadership. They see the beauty in the world and they share how they experience it with those they meet. They have a story to tell. They do so with passion and commitment. They are the Rare Birds amongst us. They’re people like Nicolas Denys, a pioneering Acadian whose hard work, determination and vision created the first commercial brewery in Atlantic Canada in 1659, right where we make Rare Bird Craft Beer today. We’re proud to carry on Denys’ legacy and brew our beer for those with rare character, who inspire us every day. Handcrafted on the pristine shores of Guysborough, Nova Scotia, where Maritime brewing began, Rare Bird Craft Beers stay true to the constant values of good taste over time. Brewed in small batches from pure Glanbùrn artesian water, hops and Canadian malted barley, each drop captures the history, flavour and rare character of our home on the Eastern Shore.

Like the building of a historical Saltbox, brewing small batches of quality beer is a deeply rooted expression of the heritage and craftsmanship found in Nova Scotia. The Saltbox house is identified by its sloping gable roof that gives it the asymmetrical shape of a lidded wooden box used to store salt during Loyalist times. In those days, most brewing and drinking was done in the home. Some say the lower roof line jutting out from the main part of the house was an addition to allow owners to incorporate a small brew room onto their living quarters.
