Pubs and Craft Breweries of North Cape Coastal Drive

Craft Breweries

Craft breweries have been popular in Canada for a while now.  Prince Edward Island has seen a lot of growth in this area too. North Cape Coastal Drive has been home to Moth Lane Brewery  since 2016. Visitors love it, and it’s a big hit with locals. You’ll discover that it’s one of the most intriguing breweries on the Island – an adventure to locate down the rustic red dirt Mikey Allen Road.  Once you’re there, you’ll love the relaxed atmosphere and the spectacular views over the water to the Sand Hills. You’ll certainly enjoy the variety of beers from “The Answer IPA” to the “Oyster Thief Stout” and the aptly named “Red Dirt Road.”

These days, the Island has lots of local brew-houses and restaurants serving up craft beers on tap. June 2018 promises to be and exciting time in Summerside.  Locals and visitors alike will be treated to the launch of a brand-new brewery in the refurbished century old train station “…where the water meets the rails.”

Local Watering Holes

As you tour the North Cape Coastal Drive, you’ll find many quaint villages and communities with their own “watering hole” or neighbourhood pub. Old-world charm abounds in wood-paneled century pubs from Summerside to Alberton.

In smaller communities like Wellington, Ellerslie and O’Leary, a visit to the Legion is always popular with locals. These less touristy spots have great prices on beer and wine, and many feature pool tables or dart boards. The Pig and Whistle (just called The Pig by locals in the know) is in behind the local fire station in Tyne Valley, and features a separate 10-pin bowling alley , which makes for great rainy afternoon entertainment suitable for visitors of all ages.
