Our Brewery

Located in Guysborough, Nova Scotia in the Authentic Seacoast Distillery & Brewery at Osprey Shores Golf Resort, our brewery restores the legacy of Nicolas Denys, who established Atlantic Canada’s first commercial brewing operation in Guysborough in 1659.

Our commitment to Atlantic Canada’s oldest brewer means we handcraft our beer in small batches using no preservatives. Fresh ingredients are combined with pure artesian water for optimal flavour. Join us in our tasting room to sample our craft beers.

Rare Bird Craft Beer growlers and bottles are available to take home directly from our brewery.

We look forward to welcoming you.
