Sample a beer in three downtown pubs, all of them offering a selection of local brews and imported favorites from Ireland and England.
After walking from the pier, you will soon reach the Old Triangle Irish Alehouse, the first of three pubs where you will sample a beer. The alehouse offers nearly two dozen different brews, ranging from Guinness Irish Stout to an India Pale Ale known simply as Keith’s.
The Old Triangle also serves several local beers such as Breton Brewing’s Sons of Hector dark brown ale and a Canadian lager called Barking Squirrel. Whichever beer you choose to sample, you can be sure that the atmosphere will be inviting as you mingle among the locals.
It’s only natural that this pub tour begins at an Irish alehouse, as Sydney has deep Celtic roots. The city’s iconic, 50-foot-high Celtic fiddle at the cruise terminal honors that history.
Your second stop will be the Crown & Moose Pub, located in a waterfront hotel. This pub has an English flair, which is reflected in the selection of beers. The atmosphere is casual and inviting, an ideal setting to sip another brew.
Then it’s on to Daniel’s Restaurant & Bar, home to cold brews, great food and good times. Enjoy a beer from a selection of Nova Scotia brews, or perhaps something that reminds you of home. Afterwards, you will walk back to the pier or you may remain in town and return to your ship at leisure, if you prefer.
