Bad Apple Brewhouse expands with new Wolfville location
Owners staffing employees with ‘all abilities’ to promote inclusion
Wolfville may be small, but its craft beer scene is growing – and it just grew a little bigger with the addition of Bad Apple Brewhouse’s new location.
Craft brewers and Bad Apple owners Jeff and Kari Saunders hail from Somerset, where their main brewing and previous retail locations are inside a large brewing area inside a barn.
The couple says the move is a big one, since they now have a retail- only dedi- cated space. And it’s also allowed them to hire new staff, including Cameron Cook, a L’Arche core member from Wolfville.
“We were looking for a space that promotes acceptance and inclusion, and Wolfville is perfect for that. We didn’t create this job for Cameron – it’s a real job, and he really seemed like the perfect fit,” says Kari Saunders.
The new location is on Elm Street, right around the corner from the existing Library Pub. It is now open, and offers beers that are bottled and on tap, whether in a flight for tasting or full pint for swigging.
Bad Apple Brewhouse owners Kari and Jeff Saunders stand with Wolfville employees Kelsey Smith, Cody Myre and Cameron Cook. The couple contacted L’Arche and offered Cameron a job at their new Wolfville location, where he will be part of the company’s payroll alongside his new co-workers.
