Uncle Leo’s Brewery Prepares for a Newcomer
Once they receive their canning machine from Calgary, Uncle Leo’s Brewery in Nova Scotia plans to increase production and grow the company.

They are leasing a canning machine which is set to arrive from Calgary, Alberta in May 2017. They predict that the machine will increase their production by 1,000 litres per week.
“Overall, it’s very exciting because we’ve been wanting to expand for a while. But it was a matter of finding the way that was going to benefit us and everybody else the best.”
-Rebecca Whiffen, Uncle Leo’s Brewery, Co-Owner
Their current bottle machine only fills two bottles at a time, so switching to a semi-automatic canning machine is definitely a step in the right direction.
“More and more breweries seem to be moving in that direction compared to bottling. I think it’s a good fit for us to do the same.”
-Karl Whiffen, Uncle Leo’s Brewery Co-Owner
They are also hoping to add a patio, so thirsty Nova Scotians and Travelers can stop in for a beer during the busy summer months. We look forward to trying them out here in Western Canada real soon.
