  • Oh my god, the beer is so bad!!! Who is reviewing this place with 5 stars? Did anyone actually try the beer? Russian river, 5 stars. Maine Brewing, 5 stars. Even in Canada there's a few - Trou du Diable, 5 stars. I tried 4 different beers here and every one of them tasted like the brewer soaked his athlete's foot in the fermentor before taking taking a piss in the brights. That sweet buttery flavor in the APA and corn beer? It's called diacetyl!!! Gross.
  • I'm not the greatest fan of sour beers, but I'm glad someone is and spends as much energy as these folks do to evangelize for the thrill of something different. I love the place which looks distinct from other beer spots, and I love the community spirit which has markets, beer and book hours, special guest podcast launches and other sparks of eccentricity. It's catered to your every desire, and that's why it deserves your praise. Things that satisfy leave you numb and bored. Things that challenge leave you excited to know when you'll experience something you didn't know you would like as much as you do until it showed up.
  • Good scene in the tasting room, nice marketing, fantastic staff, subpar beer. Their 'hop-forward' APA doesn't even have a hint of hops in the nose, and their prized sour is done with acidized grains and truly genuine artificiality. Its a crapshoot what any beer will taste like on any given day, with the greatest likelihood, statistically, being diacytal. If you want a hip spot to see and be seen, this is the place! If you want a decent brew, Unfiltered, Granite, and North are all within spitting distance.
  • North end Halifax brewery that has an awesome selection of craft beer, an amazing patio, and super friendly brewers and staff. The brewery dog Charlie waits around to check up on the customers, to make sure everyone is happy and hydrated.
  • This place embodies the true spirit of Halifax. Such warm-hearted people and delicious beer. Good Robot is a must see!!!
