  • After first 10 minutes I saw everything I needed and seemed to drag on. Would not recommend the tour just look in windows. 
  • Check this place out if your in Halifax very interesting made me feel like I was in 1850 the end was the best part, Irish music and good beer!! We even left a Lil tipsy!! 
  • A very nice brewery tour of a real Nova Scotian Brewery. Lots of interesting info and much more beer than I expected. I believe we were able to try 4 different beer which totally just 800 to 900 ml. T...  read more »
  • We had a tour booked for 2:00pm. We got there literally at 2:03pm because of construction in the area and they wouldn't let us join because we were late. I said to the lady that were were only a few minutes late and that I was surprised they wouldn't let us join, her response was "Well you're late so that's not our fault" - I was absolutely shocked by her response. Very unprofessional. Anyways they didn't let us on. So don't be late!
  • The tour includes beer tasting and a few are only available at the brewery. The fundy low tide white ipa was awesome. The best part was the girls singing at the end. Their voices were incredible. Like a great kitchen party.
  • Brewery tours of Atlantic Canada's oldest brewery with guides in 19th century motif. In an historic building this place is fantastic. Grab some pub food and Keith's beer after the tour. Love the place, but would be nice if all the tour guides were in period costume. The delivery was enthusiastic but quite robotic and scripted.
  • Not the most exciting brewery tour ever. I've done the Heineken tour in Amsterdam, and in comparison, the Keith's tour is really boring (and costs the same as the super cool, and longer Heineken tour - $25 CAD). Neat way to learn about the history surrounding Keith's and Halifax, but I probably wouldn't recommend it as a must-see in Halifax.
  • Absolute bs! Came all the way from Toronto to visit our favorite beer brewery and to find out that Apparently, the tour times are not always the right times on their official website. I would give them a 0 out of 5 if it exist. Worst explanation and customer service ever when we arrived. Telling us that it's too bad and that the times are the website are not official even though we came all the way from Toronto. Never again! Guys... If you want to tour this piece of crap brewery who apparently can't get their time straight make sure you call them first just in case! Because they don't care nor can they get it right.
