  • Your map to what might just be Canada's most-concentrated brewing district.

Consider: All over this country are places where you can find a cluster of brewers, and we're not just talking about East Vancouver. Hell, Dartmouth has two such hot spots: Lake City, New Scotland, Battery Park and Brightwood downtown; and Wright Avenue’s Upstreet, Moosehead, Propeller trifecta. But we bet nowhere else in Canada has as high a concentration of breweries and cideries, over as long a distance, as peninsular Halifax. From Garrison to Good Robot is three kilometres as the crow (2 Crows?) flies, and on a meandering route between them you can sample from 13 different brewers at the brewer’s bar. Check the map, clear your schedule and take the tour for a decadent afternoon/fact-finding mission about Halifax’s drinking gains. Enjoy the journey.
