HAMPTON, NB – A home-based nanobrewery that has been in operation for almost three years in the small community of Hampton, New Brunswick has announced the launch a “teeny tiny taproom” a short walk away from the brewery.
Gridiron Brewing was opened as Matchstick Beer Factory in November 2018 by husband-and-wife team Luke MacGregor and Heather Avery, and changed to its current moniker – inspired by the Girdiron Rapids on the Tusket River near MacGregor’s family home in Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia – the following summer.
The Gridiron taproom was soft launched last week at 1051 Main Street, previously home to Kozy Korner Restaurant, with a tap list that includes Grapefruits of Wrath Hefeweizen (4.2% abv), Moose Draw IPA (5.6% abv), Ashes to Ashes Stout (6.1% abv), Paddler’s Pale Ale (4.5% abv), Highfield Maple Amber Ale (5.1% abv), and Beach Road Rhubarb Hefeweizen (4.1% abv).
For more details including an upcoming announcement about the taproom’s official grand opening in September, see the Gridiron Brewing Facebook page.
