A “jewel in the crown” of Halifax, Alexander Keith’s Nova Scotia Brewery first opened its doors almost 200 years ago. Today, the same brewery serves as a popular destination for visitors and beer fans alike. 

One of the oldest working breweries in North America, the brewery is dedicated to crafting small batch brews, inspired by local Nova Scotian culture and Keith’s heritage. 

Visitors can tour the beautiful space and learn all about the history of Mr. Keith’s legacy, as well as get a behind the scenes look at the brewing process. The tour wraps up at “Stag’s Head”, the historic pub in what used to be the aging cavern of Mr. Keith’s Brewery. Here, visitors can sample the locally inspired small batch and limited edition beers, while enjoying live music from some of Halifax’s most talented young local musicians. 

Why not stop by for a “Real Nova Scotian Good Time”, and experience an award winning one-of-a-kind brewery tour.

Please call directly for tour times, as they are subject to change.
