For those who enjoy beer and find themselves in Halifax, a visit to the Alexander Keith's brewery is a must. The tour was great, a little rushed, but so much fun. Regrettably, I didn't get to finish my delicious beer. Who can drink that fast??? Not me. If I indulge in a beer, I savour it, and this beer was worth a lot of time.
Not only was it available for a limited time, but it was hard to find. We did not bring any home. So, it is a memory not to be relived. But maybe someone will put out a comparable stout.
We enjoyed a quick tour of the brewery, which was a beautiful place, and it smelled so good. All that brick and copper left a person with a cozy feeling.
Some of the warm feeling came from the beer as well. We enjoyed tasting 3 different beer. Frankly, it was a lot for me. I couldn't finish. I could have used at least another 45 minutes.
Then we headed down to the basement where the cozy feeling grew. I could have spent hours down there.
Our musicians were so fun and they doubled as our bartenders. After they served us, they came and sat with us for a few moments and had a nice, little chat. It was such a welcoming place. Even several hours probably would have felt rushed. If you are ever in Halifax, treat yourself to a tour here, even if you don't like beer. Our kidlets were with us and enjoyed iced tea and water along the way.
