A small little brewery taproom a few minutes from downtown on the way up to the north end. They usually have one or two nice seasonals on. The best growler prices in the city and one of the cityís original micros. Worth the visit. Theyíve got some event space here, but itís not really a spot you hang around in. Get your beer and go.

Propeller brewery is located 10 minutes walk north of downtown and they have a pretty good range of opening hours. Inside the shop is rather small. They offer about 10 beers in total, both in bottle and also on draught for growler fills. You can sample any draught no problem at all. They had a few seasonals on my visit, including mild and imperial stout. Service was prompt, but low on banter. Very much a shop only and not bar. Good value thatís for sure, Their beer is not bad, but it surprises me that this place is so highly rated. I preferred numerous venues over it (particularly Garrison brewery and Stillwell). Fine, but I wouldnít go out my way for it.

Brewery shop with some merchandise on the left side wall. Retail counter against the far wall with a couple of coolers behind and a signage above stating availability and pricing. They had 8 beers in bottles when I stopped in and maybe the same number on tap for sampling and growler fills. Thereís a second room with a bar a very long table, for after tour sampling maybe? I would buy beer here again if in the area.

Halifax is quite hilly, so prepare for a hike to get to this place. Nice physical space, but itís a working brewery with a small conference space - not a place to hang out and have a beer. Strange dynamic. Good selection in bottles and available for growler fills, but donít expect to hang out.

Stopped in while in Halifax on our east coast trip. Parked right next door at a Office Max with a little security guy that was watching the parking lot. Office Max only if not I will have the police give you a ticket. So I had to bribe the guy with a Propeller RootBeer. Not only did they have a good selection of taps and togo bottles, they also had a good selection of there own sodas.

My personal favourite of the Halifax breweries (not that thereís a ton to choose from). Solid quality brews at a reasonable price and growlers canít be beat...if you can stand drinking that much of the same thing.

Great place that just loves beer and being on the east coast. Miss not having a reason to go visit more often. Growlers are the best idea and value. I just love this place and there beer.

A cool little microbrewery, with a nice tasting room for tours, some taps for tasting, albeit, again, no special offerings. Some tchotchkes available for sale, and growlers to fill. Parking may be a problem dduring the week.

I liked their beer. I am torn if the garrison or propeller brew better beer. Most try both again when I am back in town.

Good place to get bottles of Propeller or seasonal specials. Fill up your growler here. The brewery tour is interesting, The premises is very small considering the amount of beer produced here. The brewery tour and social is well worth it.
