One Way Brewing Coming to Downtown Truro

TRURO – A business idea is moving in the right direction for three local men partnering to launch One Way Brewing (OWB) by next spring.

Co-owner Jon Keddy, said One Way Brewing, soon to be located on the main level of 676 Prince St. along side Babbling Brook Antiques. One Way Brewing is not just a mircobrewery but will be known as “Truro’s Brewery,” locally owned and operated with local expertise boosting consumer’s pride in the product.

“OWB feels new businesses and opportunities located in the downtown core, especially on Truro’s “one way” strip, will continue to enhance what the downtown is already building on,” said Keddy. “This new microbrewery will thrive to champion and further enhance the new amazing downtown vibe.

“We hope to engage and help navigate the new highway traffic to downtown while sharing our pride in local branding and ownership.”

After several meetings and touring existing breweries around the province, Eric Jackson, Ryan Blaikie and Keddy formed a vision for a Truro brewery.

“We felt that because of timing, location and experience at the table, it was just the right thing to do,” said Keddy.

He added they are looking forward to networking with downtown merchants, The Truro and Colchester Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Truro Partnership and customers to build the brand.

“Our philosophy will be if we take care of Truro, Truro will take care of us,” said Blaikie.

The boutique enterprise will be a full-tier brewhouse, with a primary focus on uncompromising quality.

“The production process will ensure every taste or pint will always be served at its peak,” Jakson said. “Always fresh, non-pasteurizing, non-preserved recipes will give customers the taste experience they deserve.”

Its location in a heritage award-winning building known as the “GingerHouse” aligns perfectly with OWB’s boutique brand and is also conductive to leading or participating in organized events in the urban regional downtown core.

In addition to great quality beer, OWB will offer the experience of seeing the “Grain to Glass” production, along with one-on-one meetings with brewmasters, filling of growlers, and tasting a series of specialty Truro brands.
