“Nice Tipple”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great way to try out the beers of this small micro brewery, we tried the beer they had on tap in the store, two dollars a glass sampled the hop yard pale, the nut brown, and the tall ship amber, and enjoyed them all, good service.

“Good Beer Bad Service”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were in Halifax recently, and went to Garrison Brewery to try their beer. We walked in the door, and were completely ignored for a couple of minutes. We were unsure where to get service, so walked to a small bar with a couple of younger guys chatting behind it. We asked about tasting their beer and were told "It costs 2 bucks to sample, look on the board to see the beer is available". We chose a couple of beers, with no help from the staff, paid our 4 bucks and looked for a place to sit. We found a couple of small bar stools at a ledge along the wall. The beer was good, but none of the staff seemed interested in passing on any information. We walked out feeling completely ignored. Possibly a couple in their 50s is not their demographic. Too bad, we probably would have purchased some beer if anyone had shown any interest.

“I Loved This Place”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is a small brewery and store that allows you to sample their various brews. It was a wonderful place to sit on a warm June day in Halifax. I sampled four different beers or ales and found each of them to be very tasty and well made. If you appreciate the brewer's art, you'll appreciate the Garrison store.

“Great local beer!!!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This brewery is directly across from the pier 22. Thay have about 10 beers on tap. They only offer tour for group and you have to call in advance. You can get a glass of beer for $2.00. We decided to make our own sampling tray of their beers. So we asked the staff to pick 5 beers on tap they thought we would like. We trying a sugar maple beer that had been brewed that day. Very tasty. Also tried 2 pale ale and 2 dark beers. All were very good. Bill liked the dark beers and I preferred the lighter beers. Over all a nice way to end a day of touring Halifax before heading back to the ship!!!!!
