DIY Craft Beer - Our Story

Best Case Beer is the realization and revitalization of a community long forgotten. For some time, beer has taken a back seat to other cultural focal points and held close by only a few. In the last few years, however, craft brewing and beer culture has made a tremendous resurgence and placed itself more rightfully as the social connection among many. Beer has transformed itself from a simple bubbly drink to a conversation piece, a chemistry and a fine art. At Best Case we are striving to push beer further than it’s gone before to unite our cause and to learn and teach the appreciation of fine crafted ale and lager.

We hope to play a pivotal role not just in brewing, but in the community by joining forces with local breweries, pubs and you “The Home Brewer.” We draw from 20 years of brewing experience by Halifax locals Steven and Mark Haynes, who have not just been working in the industry for this time, but are also avid brewers. It is their devotion to this industry that spawned an idea years ago to formulate craft beer recipes that can be easily brewed in our own home. Now with the explosion of the craft beer market, we have taken it to the next level. Best Case is not just a product. It is a community, a life style and a passion.
