About Gahan House

The Gahan Brewery (formerly Murphy’s Brewing Co.) was established in March 1997 in Charlottetown, PEI. Due to the increased popularity of the beer, they relocated to its current location, 126 Sydney Street, thus doubling its production capacity and giving it a permanent home in Old Charlottetown in The Gahan House Pub & Brewery. Murphy’s Brewing Co. was renamed The Gahan Brewery in November 2000.

On July 21st, 2008, The Gahan Brewery; PEI’s favourite brewery, officially made history with the bottling of two of their handcrafted ales. Island Red Premium Ale and Sir John A’s Honey Wheat Ale were launched as the first two flavours to be bottled by the brewery.

In September, 2014 the well established pub decided to make its way across the Northumberland Strait and open up a sister location on the historic Halifax Waterfront and in turn creating Gahan House Harbourfront for even more Maritimes to visit and enjoy their award winning ales.
