1864 Pub Tour
Founders Hall 6 Prince Street, Charlottetown PEI

When politicians got together in Charlottetown in 1864 to discuss the idea of creating Canada as an independent country, there was a lot of drinking and eating that helped forge relationships among the representatives of the various provinces. It took them 3 more years and lots more drinking and dining but Canada finally was born in 1867.

Join a Father of Confederation as we celebrate Canada's 150th birthday by hoisting a glass at three of Charlottetown's most popular pubs.

The tour will start at Founders' Hall and follow the same street the Fathers walked on their way to Province House in 1864. It'll help you work up a thirst.

Along the way, he'll take you into the Gahan House, Charlottetown's oldest brew pub to quench your thirst with several of the beers produced right on site....and some food. Then you'll cross the street to the Olde Dublin Pub where their speciality is the traditional pouring of Guinness...complete with a shamrock head. He'll finish off the tour with a visit to the Merchantman Pub to try their rum made right here on the Island....and more food.

On the way back, you'll stop in front of the old Customs House and learn how during Prohibition they used to pour confiscated liquor down the manhole every Tuesday. Just one of the many great stories he'll share.
