Good Robot Brewing Co.

Good Robot Brewing Company is a craft microbrewery and taproom located in the eclectic North End of Halifax. We believe beer reflects the quality of its maker - honest, eccentric, and maybe even flawed - and that every good beer has a great story. Come start your next story with a tasting, brewery tour, or pint at our onsite taproom. All our beers are low-gluten or gluten-reduced.
