Overview

A craft brewery located at the wharf in Port Williams, NS. Enjoy a cold brew on our deck overlooking the Cornwallis River as you experience the changing tides. Have a snack, take a tour of the brewery and taste our selection of brews. It's another great way to make your trip to the Annapolis Valley memorable.

Good service and good food, but to our disappointment, no seafood on menu, unless you call calamari seafood, definitely not Nova Scotia fare. Otherwise, good service and pleasant atmosphere, situated overlooking Minas Basin dikelands, lovely view of surrounding area.

We came to Wayfarers after a long bike ride on a hot sunny day. It was easy to find the tasting room using our GPS. When we went in, a friendly girl served us a few varieties in nice glasses at the bar. The tasting...More

After tasting a blond ale at lunch we headed straight to the source. Tastings were provided so we knew what to order in the upstairs pub. Growlers, squealers and 4 packs are available in most of their beers as well as brand merchandise.

We had stopped in the week before just to check it out. We hadn’t realized they served food, and we had just eaten somewhere else. After trying a sample of beer (Sassy Ginger) and looking at the menu, we decided to return the next week....More

Great place for a relaxing and enjoying fantastic craft beer! Beautiful views of the Cornwallis River and surrounding dyke. On our most recent visit we enjoyed some snacks on the patio. Nachos were very tasty but we found the portion small for sharing, we ended...More

Another must stop on our micro Brewery trip. They have a place to sit and enjoy your picks or simply taste at the front bar and pick your fav growler to go. I left with 4. 😂 Great 👍🏻

Great quality of drinks and appetizers with very friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. The outside patio looks right out on the Minas Basin where you can watch the incredible tidal activity of the Bay of Fundy. Will definitely be returning!
