Grab a pint at the Rare Bird Pub and at the Authentic Seacoast Brewery

The Rare Bird Pub has been named one of 10 great Canadian craft beer destinations by Where Canada. Our pub is pure east coast relaxation, with inspired views of Guysborough harbour just above the Marina. Join us for a pint and a meal on the expansive deck during the summer months. You’re bound to make new friends and meet a rare character or two. Visit the Rare Bird Pub website for more information.

We also invite you to visit us at the new Authentic Seacoast Brewery, in the same building as the Authentic Seacoast Distillery at 75 Ferry Lane 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. Join us for brewery tours and sample our beers in our tasting room.  Growler and bottle off sales are also available.

Looking to stay for awhile? Please visit the DesBarres Manor Inn website or the Osprey Shores Golf Resort website for information about how you can book your own Authentic Seacoast vacation.
