Beer continues to be brewed after over a hundred years. Has a similar vibe to the Guinness brewery in Dublin. More than just another excuse to hoist a pint.

Stopped in for a beer and dinner. Both were great and the atmosphere was awesome! Our friends had recommended Alexander Keith’s and we’re so glad they did. We can’t wait to go back.

The only thing we enjoyed was the ladies singing. Not wearing period time costume and performance seemed rushed. I could have read the little we learned, and the music was not worth the fee.

This was a most excellent tour... the tour itself was informative and entertaining but the highlight was at the end when the tour staff played some music for us while we enjoyed our samples of the end product.

Take my info for what it's worth, which is 3 visits. The only other songs I've heard is "farewell to nova Scotia" and the fables "heave away". Wethersfield or not those still occur in can't vouch for.
