We’re so proud of this member of the week: Bagtown Brewing Company.
Sackville’s first craft brewery, this nano brewery has grown from an idea AND a derelict police garage to offer; multiple taps, a clothing line, a drinking room, new and exciting sodas, flavours you can’t get anywhere else, growlers, grunters and so much more to come.
When The Sackville Commons started, in September 2016, soon after we were approached by Dr. M. Nauman Farooqi’s entrepreneurship class regarding renting a space to start a brewery in Sackville. 14 students took charge and took a short-term lease with us they couldn’t get anywhere else— and they launched their business during the school year. Transforming the former police station’s garage into a nano-brewery using a simple home-brewing setup. Once the school year was over? Anthony Maddelena, one of the entrepreneurial students who first came up with the idea, bought the shares of the other students and took over. Now moving into a sophisticated set up, sodas, cans, keg delivery and so much more…. Bagtown is uniquely Sackville and worth checking out!
We couldn’t be happier with Anthony as a member: He is a collaborator who takes ideas to action, has an amazing upcycling and D.I.Y. ethic, cares deeply about Sackville and building our business community. As an amazing experimenter: He’s our resident alchemist and is deeply adored. Keep an eye out for all the amazing things Bagrown is about to release over the summer, including more sodas, cans and more ways to enjoy the Bagtown experience! Want to follow Bagtown’s adventures?
