What you'll do

Our tour will begin with a scenic ferry ride across the water to Dartmouth, leaving behind the typical tourist hot spots of Halifax!

After a brief overview of our historical harbour we will make our way to the first of four stops, New Scotland Brewing Co. There you'll have a chance to taste 2 of their signature beverages including the world's oldest alcoholic drink, mead.

Next, we'll pop around the corner to Brightwood Brewery for 2 more samples and a behind the scenes tour of their craft beer making process. This exclusive access is only available to guests on our tour.

The third stop will take us next door to Lake City Cider, downtown Dartmouth's only cidery. If you're new to the world of ciders (or have only ever tried Strongbow) Lake City will waste no time in converting you into a fan of all things cider!

The tour will come to an end with a generous sample pour at Battery Park, Dartmouth's premier craft brew bar. The local taps are always changing but guaranteed to be 100% Nova Scotian!
Other things to note
Food will be available for purchase at our final stop but it's a good idea to eat beforehand.

We were lucky to have Meaghan and Michael all to ourselves as we were the only two people on the tour that day. That, in turn, enabled us all to spend quality time with each other and each to learn about the others' lives in some depth. The tour itself was very educational and informative as we were able to sample a wide variety of both beers and ciders in a relaxed atmosphere at the four establishments, all of which were located in a several block radius in downtown Dartmouth -- no driving need. Meaghan and Michael themselves were very knowledgeable about the beers and ciders and added to the information provided by the brewers, each of whom welcomed us to their location. We especially appreciated the inclusion of a cider-making operation in the tour and even had the opportunity to meet and talk with Poet, the cider master maker. This was a very enjoyable and relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Thanks for making it so special, Meaghan and Michael.

We really enjoyed our afternoon with Meaghan and Mike. What better way to experience the neighborhood and the local businesses than with people that are truly immersed in their town. We could've spent the whole day with them. Thanks.

Myself and my husband went on this tour recently. We are newlyweds and went to Halifax as a mini honeymoon ! This tour exceeded our expectations! Meghan knows her stuff about the beers and ciders and she knew what to recommend based on our taste ! We all chatted and felt like we made new friends on this experience! I’m not a beer drinker but the beers we tried were really good ! I’m also not a walker LOL but everything was very close to each other and the whole experience was top notch! Thanks Mike and Meghan for having us! You’re a wonderful couple who is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Halifax and the beers! 100% recommend ! Love the west coasters from Newfoundland :)

I've never done a beer&cider tasting tour before and I'm glad I did this. I had a really good time and would highly recommend it, especially because Meaghan & Mike were such good hosts. Greetings from Germany :)

Meaghan was a wonderful host for this excursion. She had deep knowledge of the local beer culture and was very welcoming to everyone in the group. The breweries were all amazing and we got to see a side of Nova Scotia we had never seen before!
