Overview

A craft brewery located at the wharf in Port Williams, NS. Enjoy a cold brew on our deck overlooking the Cornwallis River as you experience the changing tides. Have a snack, take a tour of the brewery and taste our selection of brews. It's another great way to make your trip to the Annapolis Valley memorable.

The staff is very friendly. The beer was great Food was great. BBQ on the patio where you can sit and watch the tides go out or come in. Very relaxed environment, cards and board games upstairs We will be back next summer :)

Stopped in for a flight and taste. Great upstairs patio and 8 different beers to sample. This is worth the trip along the tour.

Good service and good food, but to our disappointment, no seafood on menu, unless you call calamari seafood, definitely not Nova Scotia fare. Otherwise, good service and pleasant atmosphere, situated overlooking Minas Basin dikelands, lovely view of surrounding area.

After tasting a blond ale at lunch we headed straight to the source. Tastings were provided so we knew what to order in the upstairs pub. Growlers, squealers and 4 packs are available in most of their beers as well as brand merchandise.
