If you’ve been following along with my wing adventures for a bit then you probably know I have had plyenty of wings at this place over the years, and they are still my go-to wing spot in Halifax.
I ended up at the Alehouse early Monday evening and it wasn’t too busy, but the aroma of wings was in the air. They have a pretty good deal three nights a week if you enjoy great wings and beer – $16.50/10 wings and a pitcher of Canadian or Coors Light every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Gotta love three wing nights a week with quality wings like these!
Each wing is hugged by a beautiful coat of crisp breading that you can rip off in bite size slabs and then dunk in the sauce.
I am a a sauce on the side type of person to keep the integrity of the crispiness, and this a great example why. I find the exterior can get a bit soggy with sauce on.
If you enjoy crispy breaded wings, these are for you!
Overall Quality: 4/5
The wings were cooked for just the right amount of time and the meat had a great taste to it. However due to the size of the drums, some fatty content was present.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
This is definitely a popular wing spot, and for great reasons. I am a huge fan of the wings at the Alehouse, and many more wing adventures await me here.
If you haven’t had a chance to check them out yet and you enjoy delicious breaded wings, I would highly recommend this place.
It would be nice to see a unique sauce or two in addition to the standard wing sauces they offer, and some dry rub options would really compliment the excellent breading.
