Bacchus tours the Alexander Keith’s Brewery


Alexander Keiths, the legendary brewer of India Pale Ale opened in 1820. His legendary tavern, The Stag’s Head whose emblem can be seen on any bottle of India Pale Ale by Alexander Keith was a very busy place in Halifax as his brews stood head and shoulders above all others locally.

Touring the brewery is a real treat as tour guides in period clothes give a very authentic experience with song and dance, commentary by “Mr. Keith” himself in his parlour.  The experience takes you back in time to the 1800s when a good ale was much harder to come by than it is today.

The original brewery is still very much intact, and open to the public to be easily accessed and enjoyed for years to come.
