from outside this looked like full size brewpub/brewery a bit like Mill St. in Toronto. sadly this is only a brewery tap room. You can choose around 10 brews as samples or buy beer in bottles to go. You wont be able to eat here and docks beside close very early so come prepared.
Neat place. I went in packing for bottles to take back to a friend’s place I was staying at, got two mixed 6-packs, a 650 ml bottle and a growler. Good selection, help was okay on explaining what was out there but not willing to go beyond, although they were plenty busy with folks stopping by to drink there.
Visited on August 7, 2017, in the afternoon. Located next to the Halifax Farmers Market and a short walk from Pier 21, the building that they are in was part of the sea port complex. The place is a tap room with indoor and outdoor seating, they also have a retail shop but no food on site, there is some restaurants in the Market across the street. Quite a large place, archetypical microbrewery look; fake grunge rebel try to look different fell. Most people were here to try samples, I only went there to buy beer, not much space available to sit down and drink (it was a big weekend). It’s a decent place, more touristy.
Large selection of beers on tap. All pretty solid. Seating can be dicey. WIFI. We walked up so I don’t know about parking. Staff helpful and knowledgable. Flights only I think. Large selection of bottles also available. Their beers. I would recommend it.
A taproom/to-go store with a little patio out front and a decent amount of seating and merch inside. Service was good. 8 taps available plus samplers made it easy to work through them. No food available. Prices are in line with the area. Pretty standard taproom.
A very good selection of bottled beer ready to go with most available cold. Good prices on these. In brewery atmosphere. Excellent service. I had three beers here and took two to go: all were good or better, with one (Sugar Maple) just outstanding. Some beers only available at the brewery including some only on tap and some only bottled (e.g., the Baltic Porter).

Garrison is located all the way along the coast next to the farmers market. Inside it is rather impressive space with the brewery taking centre stage. They have a decent sized shop, bar and patio area. I opted for a flight of beers served in proper glassware, which sounds like a recent improvement according to previous reviewers. Beers are well crafted, if a little tame in style for their regulars. Staff were very knowledgable and I got speaking to the brewer himself. Very friendly guy who generously shared some of his own stash of rum aged spruce beer. I thought that particular beer was delicious. I then moved on to their fresh-fruit radler which was mighty crushable. Shop is loaded with merch and full of special release beers (barrel aged stuff and collabs). I had a great time chilling here on the Monday afternoon. A Halifax must-visit for sure.
Located on the pier near a decent little farmer’s 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 can’t beat the place for freshness!
Just across the street from the Farmer’s Market with a nice little outdoor seating area. Cheap samples and on a sunny day a great spot to do some people watching. It’s not exactly a pub - but it’s a good place to hang out and knock back some cheap samples. They had one season/collaboration on when I was there but I’m not sure if that’s typical.
