Maxwell's Plum: Halifax, NS



Maxwell’s Plum
1600 Grafton Street, Halifax, NS (902) 423-5090

Maxwell’s claim to fame in Halifax is their statement of having more beer on tap than anywhere else in Eastern Canada with up to 60 selections. A three level establishment, the Plum is a must try for those that enjoy venturing out into the beer world. As you walk through the entrance, the bar is located to the right and there you will be greeted by the friendly bartender who is more than willing to help you with your style of beer. Free peanuts and a traditional pub setting go along with a great happy hour where you can get a delicious Pumphouse Blueberry Ale. Maxwell’s bar is open till 2am along with the kitchen seven days a week offering drinkers the best of both worlds. The beer selection includes local draught like Propeller, Garrison’s, and Pumphouse, with European imports and other Canadian micro-brews. On a side note, the Plum is one of only three places in Halifax that offers McAuslan St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout on tap.

Sadly, The Coast reported last week 'no more peanuts'. Not to worry, lots of beer still.

I know, a terrible shame that they stopped.

It wasn't their choice to stop. The Health Department said the peanuts could attract rats, especially with the barrels sitting out all night, but mostly because the shells could not be cleaned up until all patrons were out after 2.am.
