We had to go to town to get gas for the little lawn mower anyway so today, we made a point of visiting the Boxing Rock Brewing Company. The Brewery is new to Shelburne and a definite must see place. You turn off the Ohio Road and onto a long driveway. At the side of the drive is this fantastic old boat:
Then further up the drive you come upon the building which is the large brewery connected to this smaller, storefront. The same nice girl who sold me the Growler at the Saturday market was there to help us with our refill this afternoon.
Our first Growler contained Hunky Dory pale ale. Today, Peter chose, Temptation, Red Ale.

Then, I peaked into the Brewery and snapped a photo of the Brew Vats! All and all we had an amazing and fun visit to Boxing Rock Brewing Company. I recommend you visit the next time you find yourself in Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Canada. To learn more about the Boxing Rock Brewing Co., visit their website: http://boxingrock.ca/
Of course, if you cannot make it to the Brewery, then at least have a beer. This is yet another good reason to visit us one summer day in Shelburne!
And finally, from the Boxing Rock website I learned how they got their name:
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 would return to the ship or shake hands and share a beer.
Either way, there’s only a few short hours until high tide . . .
We say drink up.
Everything you write makes a trip to Shelbourne more and more tempting.
I hope you will visit us here, one day.
