ABOUT GOOD ROBOT
Welcome to Good Robot, a brewery, bar, restaurant and beer garden run by a pack of misfits in the heart of Halifax’s historic North End. Our beers are known to be eclectic, eccentric, and untrue to style, fraught with foraged materials, impulse decisions, and whimsy. We don’t make ‘craft beer’; we make beer (kinda). And we enjoy sharing our beer, our building, and our childish minds with our communities.
In the summer, our GastroTurf (beer garden featuring AstroTurf) brings all the flavours of summer ales to the familiar comfort of a putting green. Year-round, we host oddball events, brew with the community, sponsor festivals, facilitate charitable incentives, and make questionable marketing decisions. Want to sit your bum somewhere and let your freak flag fly? Well, matey, set sail for Halifax’s Most Questionable Brewing Experience.
Good Robot began with 3 longtime friends and misfits who quit engineering to pursue their dream of quitting engineering. Of course, we had to do something to make money, and given we were spending nearly half of each pay check on beer, pursuing a good-time beer company was the next natural step. Since 2015, the group of 3 former engineers has grown into a band of misfits who share our values of good times, goodwill and good nature. So drop by sometime - maybe you’ll join our band, too.
Another thing about Good Robot Brewing Company, sometimes we meet a group of misfits that share our values and together, we do weird, wonderful things. We support the following incentives by virtue of many of our staff and guests being femmes, Bahamians, performers, queer, musicians, and/or filmmakers.
HPX is an annual festival that presents over 150 artists, comedians and speakers in more than 15 venues across Halifax. Along with Garrison Brewing and Gahan House, Good Robot sponsors HPX in order to keep Halifax a burgeoning scene for musicians.
Just to the south of our building resides the Centre for Islamic Development, a nonprofit organization whose motto is to promote understanding and peace through education. Given that this is a place of worship, child and adult education, prayer, and community, we ask that our guests please be mindful and respectful of their presence. Kindly resist the urge to be excessively loud in and around our location. Do not smoke or loiter outside the Centre or we will kindly ask you to move in front of our building. We make every effort to keep the sidewalks in front of both our buildings clean, but please use the appropriate cigarette butt disposal. Thank you for your understanding and for reading all about Good Robot Brewing Company.
