Brewery Market

1496 Lower Water Street


The Brewery Market is steeped in history. Originally built in the 1800s, the property has been home to the Alexander Keith’s Brewery—one of the oldest working breweries in North America—ever since. Today, this landmark is one of the most unique commercial and retail spaces in Halifax, hosting tenants from inventive tech start-ups to fine dining restaurants and local cafés. And that’s exactly what makes the Brewery Market so much more than just a place to work.
