Craft brewery to open in Lyons Brook this weekend
Comments are Off
LYONS BROOK – On the shores of a small fishing outport in Newfoundland, a man set up a general store and brewed beer for his customers. In the 1940s, beer was hard to come by in rural Newfoundland, so you made it yourself or if you lived near Southern Harbour, you bought it from a man named Leo Whiffen.
More than 70 years later, his great nephew, Karl Whiffen, has tapped into his brewing genes and is opening a craft brewery in his uncle’s name, providing Pictonians with a beer experience they wouldn’t have unless they travelled to another region of the province.
