Good Cheer Trail 2015
Explore Nova Scotia a new way this season. 38 Nova Scotia wineries, craft breweries, brew pubs and distilleries are participating in this Canada first, Good Cheer Trail. The destinations range from our Southwest region’s Rudder’s Seafood restaurant & Brew Pub, to Tatamagouche Brewing Company and Lunenburg’s Ironworks Distillery all weaving through Nova Scotia’s heritage sites, beaches, cities and rolling farmlands. To be specific, 14 wineries, 17 breweries and brew pubs, and five distilleries are in on this inaugural year’s trail.
Samuel de Champlain started the Order of Good Cheer in Port Royal, Nova Scotia in 1606. It is the oldest social club in North America. The purpose was to provide good food, drink and good times for people during colonization. The Good Cheer Trail continues that long tradition of hospitality and pride for the bounty of Nova Scotia. – novascotia.com
