Bad Ap­ple Brew­house ex­pands with new Wolfville lo­ca­tion

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.
