An official with the city of Halifax is going to meet with a brewery and representative of an Islamic centre to see if complaints about noise can be worked out.

The centre has raised concerns about the amount of noise coming from the bar and brewery next door.

The Centre for Islamic Development says in a noise and litter complaint that it wants an end to the urination, vomiting and cigarette butts from bar patrons of Good Robot Brewing Company.

The centre member who wrote the complaint against the Good Robot Brewing Company says the brewery assured centre representatives that something would be done, but noise hasn’t subsided.

Juan Carlos Canales-Leyton says the issue is whether the centre can conduct its affairs without being affected by its neighbour or the people who are attracted to its premises.

The centre has been in the Robie Street neighbourhood for about 20 years and purchased its current location in 2001. The brewery moved next door in May 2015.

Good Robot opened a beer garden in May of this year.
