This project will also assist with the purchase of new incremental processing equipment and the installation of an innovative product containment system. The brewery focuses on organic ales with ingredients sourced locally.

Breton Brewing Co. is receiving a repayable investment of $86,000 to support the installation of two new fermenting tanks and a canning line for packaging at their microbrewery in Sydney.

The craft beer industry in the province saw sales grow by 25.1 per cent this past year, spurred by 23 local microbreweries.
