Located on the pier near a decent little farmerís market, the building looks inviting. Popping in, however, one quickly discovers that it is less a brewpub and more a tasting room with bottle sales. Only 5 taps, plastic cups, that whole deal. That being said, the staff obviously know their stuff, and you canít beat the place for freshness!

Just across the street from the Farmerís Market with a nice little outdoor seating area. Cheap samples and on a sunny day a great spot to do some people watching. Itís not exactly a pub - but itís a good place to hang out and knock back some cheap samples. They had one season/collaboration on when I was there but Iím not sure if thatís typical.

I wasnít impressed at all. They had alsmost nothing available on tap, and what they did have was being served in plastic cups. Stood around the bar area for a few minutes and couldnít find an employee to help me even though it was pretty empty, so I gave up and left. Iíd say skip it.

Awesome space across from the farmers market in the port. Love the decor and large selection of bottles and taps. Weird staff, though. I spoke to 3 people behind the bar and they all seemed very over it. Disappointing really. Sorry for buying a bunch of your beer and asking about your brewery...

I assume itís because of arcane NS liquor laws, but it totally sucks that you canít buy a tasty beer from their coolers and drink it on site. You are stuck with whatever they have on tap (probably 6-7 taps) and little 4 oz tasters in a plastic cup.

Located at the end of the boardwalk, beside the Farmers Market, this brewery has a very open and welcoming appearance with handsome signage. Inside it really is just a large tasting room, albeit nicely arranged. Tons of swag for sale. A glass cooler houses everything they brew, including a few selections not circulated in stores, as well as house made sodas (which our kids loved). Excellent service. No food.

Happen to just stubble upon this brewery when just walking along the pier from our hotel, had no actual plans to go here, but the brewery it self was in a really nice location. When you walk in you can see the brewing tanks and things the brewery is very modern in appearance, really nice in side, They had a big cooler to the left of the door with a large selection of garrison brews. There was a man with 5 tap handles I believe serving beer. Good stop, worth a stop if your in the area

Not the best brews made in Halifax but youíve got to give them credit for always pushing the envelope and trying new things. Jalapeno beer anyone? (good for cooking with, not so much for drinking)

This was right behind the hotel where I stayed (Westin) so that was a good surprise. The store and tasting room area is big, all beer sample are 1$ for a 4 on, 2$ for a bigger sample. Loads of Garrison paraphenelia for sale. Unfortunatelly, they didnt have any of their big hitters. Only 5 offerings available.
