A brewery, like the beach, is a relaxing oasis that allows tired travellers to bask in golden hues, frolic in frothy spumes, and get in splash fights with siblings. Savour sudsy fun with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get a single admission at Alexander Keith's Brewery in downtown Halifax (a $15.95 value). Brew-enthused actors in period clothing take beer lovers through a theatrical tour of the original Keith's Brewery Building while pontificating about life in 1863, the history of Halifax, and Keith's brewing process. Spill a mug of ale in Alexander Keith's cellars and pretend to know the words as tour guides sing old Halifaxian songs and tell beer-related stories of yesteryear and the oft hazy yesternight.
Canadian Living named Alexander Keith's Brewery one of "7 reasons to visit Nova Scotia." Yahoo! Travelers. Nine Yelpers both give the brewery an average of four stars, and TripAdvisors give Alexander Keith's an average of three stars.
- Actors dressed in period costumes guide you through Mr. Keith's story, explain how to make beer and take you to the Stag's Head Tavern where adults can enjoy two beer samplings and live music. You'll end this tour with a new appreciation for Alexander Keith's beer and his life's work as a local politician, a businessman, a philanthropist and a quality-conscious brew master. – Jennifer Melo, Canadian Living
- We were very pleasantly surprised by the Alexander Keith's tour. It was done in the Alexander Keith period, but without being too corny. It was actually a tonne of fun! – jackski5, TripAdvisor
