We welcome all, with friendly smiles and open hearts, to our Cape Breton Island. With a fierce pride for our beautiful home, we invite all walks of life to come, eat, drink and be present. When you’re on Route 19 all roads lead home, and our door is always open. We brew our beer in beautiful Inverness, Cape Breton. Stop by for a brewery tour, beer flight sampler, or grab some cans & a growler to go.

Our three-level ocean-side restaurant features a full food and drinks menu with items suitable for all. Our food menu specializes in east coast favourites with a unique twist – such as lobster pizza, baby donairs and the island’s best seafood chowder.

All three floors are elevator accessible. We offer free WIFI and parking.  Our building features modern architecture injected with craft brewery influences. Enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean located directly across from the world-renowned Cabot Links golf course.

While you’re at the brewery, grab some Route 19 swag to go in our retail shop.  We carry growlers, grunts, cans, clothing, glassware, gift cards and much more!
