Grab a pint at the Authentic Seacoast Brewery

We invite you to enjoy our craft beer in the tasting room at Authentic Seacoast Distillery & Brewery at 75 Ferry Lane. Nestled between Cutler Cove and Mussel Cove on the historic Guysborough harbour, our expansive brewery tasting room is the perfect spot to enjoy a pint or a tasting board of our beers. You’re bound to make new friends and meet a rare character or two.

Our brewery restores the legacy of Nicolas Denys, who established Atlantic Canada’s first commercial brewing operation in Guysborough in 1659. Join us for brewery tours and learn more about this proud brewing heritage and how we handcraft a great maritime beer. You can read more about our tours here.  Growler and bottle off sales are also available.
