I visited this place with my kids (8&9 years old) recently. We loved it! There were real actors explaining brewing process, showing the brewery itself, singing, dancing, and much more. At the end of the tour they give adults to taste one or even two of their famous beers (which I already tasted before and quite enjoyed) and my kids... More

Although we drank a lot of Keith's while in Nova Scotia, we were disappointed at the brewery itself. The tour was overpriced, as were the souvenirs.

Expect the unexpected! This was a very fun way to spend an hour. The tour was entertaining and informative all at once. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour guides being in costume and character as well as visiting Alexander Keith's real home. Loved the beer options (bonus points for having a non alcoholic option) and in particular the setting which we were... More

A brewery tour with a Waiting for Godot twist, this is a fun time for folks who want to enjoy a half hour of theatre, music and refreshments. The tour guides are all wonderfully talented and the music is particularly good. Expect to learn a bit of Halifax history and the basics of beer brewing. Also expect the opportunity to... More

I knew what I was getting into from other reviews, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The actors were great, and I thoroughly enjoyed the music. I haven't done many brewery tours, but I think you got to learn quite a bit about the actual brewing process. And the people who made beer such a part of our Canadian heritage. I... More

The tour was a little pricey! At 42$ per couple, I was expecting to have an unlimited amount of time to spend here. We were shuffled through very quickly by actors in period costume. There was barely enough time to enjoy our beer before we were told to leave and exit out into the gift shop! The beer was good,... More

This was our 5th time on a tour at Keith's Brewery...this was the best tour we've been to there (all have been fantastic) just the actors were really good this time around. Even though this is a brewery tour it is still super interested for the whole family. While tasting the beer there is ice tea and lemonade for the... More

LIKE IT A LOT! What a fun tour! It starts off a bit slow, with a video, then it just get's better and better! The staff are theatrical tour guides. It was like watching - no being - in a play all while sampling brews and learning about the history of the brewery and why they choose Halifax. Don't miss... More

This was very hokey. I didn't mind the "in character" concept but felt the historical information was very light. I'd rather have a tour than a play as you couldn't even ask questions because it would've thrown the actors off. For the 100.00, a definite disappointment. Only good thing was it gave our family a running joke for the rest... More

Costumed tour guides were fun and enjoyable. More historical information than just brewery tour. Songs, games and beer samples added extra fun.
