The Maxwell’s Plum in Halifax

I am in Halifax at the moment, speaking at TechDays. I am doing two sessions here Branching and Merging yesterday and Build Automation today.

Yesterday one of my partners Bruce Johnson surprised me by showing up to do a talk. Nice for me now I had someone to have dinner and a beer with.

So Bruce and I headed out looking for a pub. We got lucky first time finding The Maxwell’s Plum. I can’t recommend it enough the food was good and the beer even better. They have a huge selection of drafts on tap. Our server Amy was funny and friendly and knew her beer.

First we both tried a BlackBerry which was a variation on Black and Tan using Pumphouse Blueberry as the Tan. It was very nice.

So I thought I would see how well Amy knows her beer. I asked her to suggest some beers. She asked me what kinds of beers I like. I ended up having a Garrison Tall Ship Ale which is a local micro brewery and it was excellent. I also had a Propeller Pale another local brewery. Both were great beers, it’s nice when the server actually knows and understands the product they are selling.

Now if the Prince George Hotel where I stayed understood their rooms are not worth the price they are charging. :(
