Alexander Keith's Brewery Reviews & Ratings
Unlike some comments I read, I'd say the tour is totally worth the price. The guides are nice and entertaining, you can tell they love their job and they love the brewery as well. You'll get some infos about Alexander Keith's himself, about the history behind the brewery and a bit on how the beer is made. You'll also get the chance to taste some of Alexander Keith's beers that aren't available elsewhere. I'd suggest you eat before (you'll get 30oz of beer to drink in a somewhat short time). It's definitely an activity I recommend if you are in Halifax.
A highlight on our trip to Halifax. The tour is definately worth every penny! The staff were energetic, friendly, and very entertaining! The information on Alexander Keith's history and brewery are very informative. And to the gentleman and girls singing in the red stag, very talented!
The staff was highly energetic and provide interesting insights of the brewery, its beers and the history behind it. They also give us plenty of samples, which made me a little tipsy after the tour ended and that's a good thing haha, there's also iced tea and lemonade for those who do not drink or under the legal drinking age. Definitely a must place to visit while in Halifax.
Absolutely amazing place to get a tour. All the tour guides went above and beyond and made it an absolute blast! There were only two of us on the tour and it did not matter at all, they had a ton of fun and so did we. And there's a good amount of included beer! Honestly, way worth the money and time, a definite must-go, highly recommend!!!
Amazing, fun, interactive tour. We had a lot of fun as a group and sampled a lot of beer. Highly recommended for beer and non beer lovers due to the historical background of Alexander Keith himself.
