“Great local brew spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Drop in and try the sampler. Once you find one you like, drop some for the road. You can also bring some food and eat it on the patio while you are sampling the beers. Stop by if you are in the area.

“Quick beer near cruise port”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stopped in this brewery before heading back to our cruise ship. It is located right in front of the Port of Halifax. A fairly small place with options to try samples of their brews for, I think, $3 each for 2 ounces. As is typical in a brewery they have a variety of beers to enjoy. There is no fee to enter here and there is no food for purchase. They have seating outside for when the weather is nice and have limited seating indoors. Didn't find the guys working there too personable or accommodating. Give it a try when you are thirsty for a brew....

“Garrison Brewing has some great beer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stopped by the Garrison Beer Store on our way back to our cruise ship after touring the Halifax area. It is very close to the port, so that was quite convenient. My husband is a home brewer and works at one of the local craft breweries in Nashville, so we always like to check out local craft brewers when we travel! They serve only samples at Garrison,and we tasted just about all they had to offer and were very impressed by the variety and quality of their product. If we had more time, we would have liked to have toured the brewery, which you could see from the area where the samples were served. We enjoyed visiting here!

“Small drinks but great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

I didn't get the reason for the small drink sizes here but the beer sure was good anyways. Great location to stop for an artisan beer right at the cruise terminal.

“Tasting room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We were on a cruise and this is near the port. We decided to try 4 samples. It was fun and the fruity one (raspberry I think) was our favorite. No food though. Lots of fun items to buy though.
