Brightwood Brewery


Brightwood Brewery and our tap room, Brightwood Market, have been a dream, and a labour of love, that has been a long time in the making.
The founders, Ian and Matt, met at their old engineering jobs in Halifax, NS. Matt had been home brewing for some time at that point and got Ian hooked. The hobby grew into such an obsession that they created Brightwood Brewery; headquartered out of the basement of Ian’s small house on Brightwood Avenue in Dartmouth, NS. A perfect spot for a nano-brewery.


Passion for beer drives Brightwood, but one of the biggest aspects we’re excited about with a brick and mortar shop is the chance to do right by the community that helped us out so much. Stay tuned for local colabs, cross promotions, charity events, local food venders, concerts and local artist spotlights that make this community so great!
