Cafes & Bars

Halifax has often been considered a beer town. Maybe you can blame it on Alexander Keith, founder of the namesake brewery, one of the oldest in North America, that still sits down by the city’s waterfront churning out bottle after bottle of lagers and ales or the fact that Halifax is one of the biggest college towns in the country. Whatever the reason, the city’s long love affair with hops has become something of a calling card.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Founded in 1820, Alexander Keith‘s next to the Halifax Waterfront, is among the oldest commercial breweris in North America
  • You can only buy alcohol in special, government-owned liquor stores called NSLC
  • There are more pubs per capita in Halifax than any other city in Canada
