Beer on the Pier!

Beer on the Pier!
is the motto of the upcoming Beerfest in Halifax on Friday, August 13 and Saturday, August 14. Between the VIA Rail station and the Pier 21 museum - or more precise between the Garrison Brewery and the new Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, one can enjoy sun, music and the world best brews.

That doesn't mean only Labal, Molson or Keiths. Many micro brewerys from the Maritimes, Ontario Quebec and Maine introduce their best beers to visitors. More than 150 brews (and also ciders) are available for tasting, half of them not available in liquor and beerstores.

Great drinks deserve great food.

Taste of Nova Scotia food partners offer delicious fresh-prepaired snacks for hungry festival goers.

Tickets for $40 (advance) or $45 (at the door) include music, unlimited beer samples and a 4oz souvenir glass.
