Old Peculiar—it’s both the name of the best beer made on the premises (since it opened as Atlantic Canada’s first brewpub in the mid-1980’s) and an apt description of the place. From the outside, the 1834 ironstone building is austere and more than bit foreboding. Inside it’s, well, the same, especially in the downstairs pub where the walls are also stone. Still, the place is a local landmark, meaning that it’s possible to find a wedding party in for a celebratory pint on the way from the chapel. Both the beers, ale, stout and the pub grub (like chicken and leek pie, bread pudding or fishcakes) honor British classics.
