This was a great tour. You don't have to be a beer drinker to enjoy it. The brewery is the original building so the architecture is great. The tour is done by actors so you learn history of the time period as well as the history of the brewery. The actors are great and you will enjoy song dance games... More

Not so much a brewery tour as a tour de force by a group of talented and enthusiastic actors. Each playing their part in telling the story of the brewery the beer and the man, in what is in effect, a series of set stages with some well produced video segments, in which you also play your part too.Once this...

the players at the AK brewery tour certainly get into their roles as 19th century period personalities. Something to occupy an hour or so on a rainy day.

The Alexander Keith's Brewery was a great learning experience. I got to learn all about the history, and still had a great time ! The workers there were all AMAZING! They were so theatrical and made you feel like you actually went back in time! HOW COOL IS THAT?! And the fact that you get to taste the beer at... More

My husband and I were on a cruise that stopped in Halifax. On the way back from the Citadel, we passed this brewery. There was a sign out front. We took a chance and went in. I had expected an explanation of how beer was brewed. While we learned a little of that, the best part were the actors and... More

This tour is fun and really gives you the whole story going back in time to how the brewery got started. Time to sample at least 2 full glasses of beer. Play a game and have a sing song. It is over 20 bucks a person (drinkers) and 1/2 price for non drinkers.

First of all, My friend and I were not expecting people role playing about the history of Alexander Keith's beer and where it came from. The actors were very professional and friendly. We were both caught off guard at first and got into the role playing. Included is a sampling of their beers ( too short of time ), but... More

We had a private party and beer tasting. I was reallly impressed with the tour and the "acting" that was done by castmembers. It was interesting and the beer was awesome!! Don't miss this tour if you go to Nova Scotia.

We did not know what to expect except it cost $19.95 for the tour. It is great combination of history, mirth, merriment and great beer. The tour takes about an hour with a raucus welcome by an enactor, a welcoming film about the history of Alexander Keith's Brewery a tour of the brewing copper vats with an introcuction to the...
