The home of the Old Triangle Alehouse is the historic building that Joseph Howe wrote about the Halifax government for Haligonians in 1848. The Old Triangle was created by three Irishmen: Kevin Evans, Brian Doherty and Gerry Guest who transformed the pub into a three tiered drinking establishment. The first floor is home to the “Tigh An Cheoil (house of music) where local performers take the stage seven days a week. Walk the few steps up to the “Pourhouse” where you can sit at the bar or pull up a table to enjoy the festivities. Another set of stairs takes you to the “Snug”, where you can tuck themselves away and enjoy the perils of drink and friends. The Old Triangle focuses on giving customers a lasting experience by instilling their motto of “food for the body, drink for the spirit and music for the soul”. The Irish Alehouse provides an entertaining time with a wide array of beer selection. Many local draughts on tap include Propeller, Garrison, Keith’s and Clancy’s but they also feature many European imports like Guinness, Smithwicks, KilKenny, Harp etc. For a complete lineup of their beer selection, visit their website.
