Alexander Keith's Brewery, Halifax Reviews
Best tour I've ever experienced! I was the only person to attend the 5pm time frame and they treated me like a VIP. The guides were absolutely full of AK facts, hilarious and most passionately talented group. I'd recommend anyone to visit this Brewery.
We did the brewery tour while in Halifax. It was an amazing tour. The guides really get into the spirit of things. They give you just the right amount of beer samples and knowledge of the brewery and its history. They end off the tour with some traditional Scottish folk music by a live band and a couple pints! We took our 3 year old son on the tour and were a bit nervous about it but it was family friendly and they offer ice tea and water to kids or non drinkers. They also have a games room for kids to toss some bean bags while parents enjoy their samples. Definitely worth going.
I recommend doing the tour it was really fun. They take you through the distillery and explain the history of the beer, you get a generous amount of samples and live music! Only thing i wish would've been included is a souvenir gift such as glass or bottle opener. Other brew tours I've been on have been cheaper and you at least get a glass. But overall definitely loved it the people that work there are super nice and welcoming!
We had snow for the first time of the year in Halifax and there is limited parking due to construction. I arrived 10 minutes late for my scheduled tour and despite being able to see my friends as they had not yet entered the brewery, I was rudely turned away and told I missed the tour as it is a working brewery and they have a rule they cannot allow people in late. I was dumbfounded as my friends had not even entered the "working brewery" yet. But I was still not allowed to go in. Absolutely ridiculous rule that does not factor in personal circumstances nor does it make any sense as they had not entered the brewery. Won't be back.
We did the tour which was very well run. Staff were knowledgeable and very friendly/energetic. The beer samples and songs were a perfect mix
