The Rare Bird Pub - Guysborough, Nova Scotia

Guysborough is home to the oldest commercial brewing operation in Atlantic Canada. This centuries old brewing tradition began in 1659 with the enterprising Acadian, Nicholas Denys and continues on today in the Rare Bird with the Authentic Seacoast™ Brewing Company.

"Inside, it's no less impressive; it's a spacious pub with a modern, shiny, copper brewery"
– Progress Magazine

The Authentic Seacoast's Brewing Co.'s commitment to Atlantic Canada's oldest brewer means we make beer the authentic seacoast way – handcrafted in small batches using no preservatives. Our Rare Bird Craft Beer is made with pure artesian water and premium ingredients to capture the history, flavour and pioneering spirit of Chedabucto Bay.

Rare Bird Craft Beer

Brewing 101
Our commitment to making you a great Nova Scotia craft beer starts with quality ingredients. We begin by selecting the finest hops and malted barley. Then we combine these fresh ingredients with pure, unchlorinated artisan water. No preservatives are added to our unique recipes. Our beer is then fermented in copper clad, polished stainless steel fermenting tanks. After fermentation is complete, we store the beer in stainless steel storage tanks in a temperature control room that holds the beer at 4° Celsius for optimal flavour. We invite you to come and enjoy the exceptional taste our commitment to brewing excellence creates.
