Ask anyone from Nova Scotia what the province’s favorite beer is, and they’re bound to say Alexander Keith’s. You can’t make a trip to Halifax without visiting the famous brewery, founded in 1820. Nowadays, Alexander Keith’s still makes up for every 1 in 3 beers sold within the province.

The brewery is one of the oldest breweries in Canada, built in 1820 and made of ironstone and granite. It’s located on the waterfront of Halifax, and for a small fee you’re able to tour the facilities with some very entertaining guides. Animators in period costume will guide you through Halifax life in 1863, complete with songs and even a few pub games from that time. 

You’ll have plenty of opportunity for beer tasting as well, with at least five regular beers on tap and seasonal brews available when possible. 

Alexander Keith himself is a legend. He was one of those rare, beloved politicians revered by the locals, and he was elected as mayor of Halifax three times. He died in 1873, but every year on his birthday, people visit his grave at Camp Hill Cemetery and pay tribute by leaving behind beer bottles or caps. 

HALIFAX CITADEL NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE

The Halifax Citadel is anything but a simple museum. Every day, the Citadel comes to life with the sounds and colour of its re-enactment interpreters, the 78th Highlanders and the Royal Artillery. Dressed in the same uniforms that their respective regiments wore in the mid-1800s, the 78th Highlanders guard the Citadel’s entrance and conduct marching and band drills on the parade grounds, while the Royal Artillery fires the Noon Gun every day at 12 pm – a Halifax tradition that is one of the oldest in the world.
