More than just a brewery tour, visiting the old Alexander Keith’s brewery is a multimedia trip through time, with actors to guide you through. The old brewery itself is quite atmospheric, and the tour is hands-on so it keeps you interested, even though everyone wants to get straight to the beer. The tour culminates in an old-time beer hall where the spirited actors sing traditional Celtic songs and make bawdy jokes while you get to sample different types of Keith’s beers and ales. Although it should be cheesy, it manages not to be, and is a very entertaining primer on the history of Halifax as well as the history of Keith’s beer. The tour is kid- and tee-totaler-friendly, as there are non-alcoholic beverages served, too, so no one feels left out. The Keith’s Brewery tour is a great way to spend a morning, but be prepared to wobble a bit when you leave after all those samples.
