Economy Shoes

Troy Burtch with TAPS Magazine gave us a list of suggested pubs and microbreweries to visit in Nova Scotia. Half way through his list was a place called 'Economy Shoes.'

Wahoo, I thought! NOW we're talking a language I understand!
Well, folks, don't fall for this ruse! As all Halagonians know, and I quickly found out, Economy Shoes is a well known pub in downtown Halifax!

Pub Food

Ok - Here's something that I can promise will never be on a North Menu:

Deep Fried Pepperoni!

Alain spreads the Good Word of TAPS Magazine

In this photo Alain is in The Old Triangle Pub in Halifax, reading TAPS Magazine and enjoying a pint!

We used the recommendations of the Brew Master at TAPS to help us determine which pubs we should stop in at.

It was a long list!!!!!!!!!!

More Tasting Adventures

Alain and I are in Nova Scotia with our good friends Pat and Chip Loughead. This is a Canadian version of our trip to England last year where we searched for a Hand Pulled Pint of beer that Alain and Chip didn't like!

You can see from this picture that we are getting good at sampling! Here we have 2 ounce pours of six different beers from the Rock Bottom Microbrewery in Halifax.
