“The World of the Microbrewery”
April 20, Thursday, 2:00 pm (at the Saltbox Brewery)


Mo Devereaux will walk us through the world of Saltbox microbrewery, the products they are producing, and an introduction to Tasting and Pairing. We will sample the products and pair them with foods that have been chosen to enhance the taste. A great afternoon is in store.
This presentation is limited to 30 people and there will be a $10.00 charge per person. Please contact the Mahone Bay Centre to register and arrange for payment.
Moira “Mo” Devereaux has a diverse background in marketing, new product development, and
beer! She started her own beer business (Sophie McCall Inc.) in San Francisco in the late 1990’s during the formative phase of the U.S. craft beer movement. Now a local small business owner in Mahone Bay, NS, she is working with the Saltbox Brewery as they develop their own line of unique and flavourful beers. Mo is currently studying to become a “Cicerone”, the beer equivalent of a “sommelier” in the wine industry. As part of this process, she offers beer education and tasting sessions, including the history of beer, comparison of beer styles, and
beer and food pairings.
