Alexander Keith's Brewery, Halifax Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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 did the tour which was very well run. Staff were knowledgeable and very friendly/energetic. The beer samples and songs were a perfect mix

  • This was without doubt the best brewery tour I've taken, and probably one of the best tours full stop. The guides (who take on the character of a Victorian era brewery employee) are very enthusiastic, entertaining, and good-humoured. The tour itself is pretty comprehensive, though beer fans should be aware that it focuses on the history of the Keith's brewery, rather than the brewing process itself. Finally, the free beer (2 schooners) is served in a replica of an old time pub - which is a nice touch! Well worth the price of admission!

  • Great tour that my wife and I took. I've been to others and this tour is more about the history of Alexander Keith's and not the process of how they make the beer. For me, this was a great tour and well performed by all staff! Thanks!
