Charcuterie Ratinaud

I had the opportunity to try some of their stuff a couple months ago - cannot quite remember what I ate but I do remember enjoying it greatly!

Pressgang in Halifax

They were most likely actually "black point" oysters. They're the most common ones we get around here They're local and delicious and the quality is consitent.

Check out The Wandering Sheppard cheese! I haven't yet but I'd love to get a review of their stuff!

pubs/brewpubs in Halifax and St John NB

the henry house is NOT the only spot serving granite brewery beers! The fickle frog also does for sure, and I think a few other places have picked them up on tap as well. (The granite brewery's peculiar is my all time favorite beer)

I also put a vote in for the Hart and thistle - though I was less impressed with the beer and more wowed by the lamb burger.

Also consider checking out Rock Bottom, the brewmaster who is working there now used to work at both Garrison and hart and thistle so he has tons of experience.

Stop by the garrison brewery to pick up flavours you won't find served anywhere - like their amazing jalepeno beer. mmm.

oh, and avoid the halifax alehouse. when you have so many other genuinely awesome places to choose from
