Authentic Seacoast Brewing Company – Guysborough

Authentic Seacoast Brewing Company is located in Guysborough, home to the oldest commercial brewing operation in Atlantic Canada with a history dating back to 1659. Authentic Seacoast opened their doors in 2005, intent on continuing the town’s long brewing history. Their beer is brewed with pure, unchlorinated, artesian water sourced in the community.
