Dickie-Baxter Taproom & Bistro
Canning Cider House

Dominic and Clare Rivard, the duo and proud owners of the Dickie Baxter Taproom & Bistro, a culinary gem in the heart of Canning. Both veterans of the global wine and cider industry, spanning several decades, they reflect a deep-rooted passion for fine dining and quality drinks. The couple settled in Nova Scotia a decade ago, bringing their expertise and enthusiasm to the local community. Four years ago, they made Canning their home, a decision that has significantly impacted their professional and personal lives.

In early 2021, Dominic and Clare embarked on a new adventure, founding the Dickie Baxter Taproom & Bistro. This venture was a natural progression of their careers, combining their love for hospitality with their extensive knowledge of the alcohol beverage industry. Recently, they expanded their business portfolio by establishing the Canning Cider House, an innovative combination of a fish and chip shop and a cidery. Their entrepreneurial spirit has not only enhanced the culinary landscape of Canning but also contributed to its economic vitality. Employing 18 people in the village, Dominic and Clare are key players in the community’s growth. They take pride in calling Canning home and are deeply invested in its future, seeing bright prospects for both their businesses and the community at large. Their commitment to excellence and community development makes them cherished figures in Canning, embodying the spirit of innovation and resilience.
