An amigo and I had an excellent tour last Wednesday with a certain Tiffany Ross-Fletcher. She provided a very well curated experience for us -- and we enjoyed ourselves immensely -- with the BR's history, beer traditions, vision, and tastings. I would recommend this experience to anyone; beer-aficionado or beginner. And good call with having the tasting AFTER the tour...I... More

Learned so much about big rocks history and their range of beers. Who knew they had so many delicious beers. Came away with a great... More

Awesome place to check out. Wide range or beers with knowledgeable staff. Cory showed us around , introduced us to some staff and some of big rocks finest. If you haven't already go on a tour, well worth it.

This tour was awesome. Learned a lot about the making of beer and how long it takes to make it. The tour guy Garret is an awesome tour guy. The beer tasting is awesome too. Learn a lot about the different kinds of beer and what goes into each one to give it flavor.

Big Rock Brewery was truly an amazing experience. Right from the start the tour guide Garret was extremely friendly and helpful, explaining the tour and registration paperwork. Garret was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and the brewing process, which clearly illustrates his passion for beer and the craft. He can also very easily explain all of the beers available for... More

Me and my husband went on this tour for date night and it was fantastic experience. The sampling was amazing and it really opened my eyes to how quality beer should taste and how much history there is behind beer. Cody was really informative and a lot of fun too! Would definitely recommend this tour and Cody!

I've done brewery tours in Germany, Belgium, and Austria but I've never learned so much and had such a nice time as I did at Big Rock!

Garret (our tour guide) is not only incredibly knowledgeable of craft brewing intricacies, but he is also a great ambassador of Big Rock and it's celebrated journey. The tour/tasting lasted 2 hours and it never felt rushed - every question was expertly handled (and often with a display of humour). I left with a greater appreciation of Big Rock and... More

This brewery tour was truly next level. Big Rock's all access approach takes you through the brewery and goes in depth on all aspects of their high quality brewing process. Our tour guide Cody had a wealth of stories and knowledge; but what really showed through was his passion - this guy was entertaining and totally somebody I'd have beer... More
