Wackity Shmackity Brew! American wheat beer craft beer microbrewery Halifax Nova Scotia Good Robot Brewing microbrewery north end

Our American Wheat beer, Wackity Shmackity Brew!, is a tribute to Patton Oswalt: comedian, writer, actor, raconteur, and battler of depression. Patton recently lost his wife and we questioned whether publishing a tribute beer to him at this time was appropriate. But the man himself is back on social media and filling his fans with his irreverent, pointed and funny takes on life. That's the beauty of comedy: the ability to make us laugh in times of need. Beer shares this trait. And for that, we cheers the man who makes us laugh, think, and carry on when the going gets tough.
