My boyfriend and I went for a tour of Big Rock and were not disappointed! You sample as many beers as you want before and after the tour. Colin was our host for the afternoon, and he was fantastic- very passionate, clearly loves his job, and is extremely knowledgeable. Be sure to stop by!

I visited the brewery with my adult family and it was a fun afternoon. The staff is generous with the drinks, so you will mostly get your tour cost back drinks, and there's lots of variety to choose from. I'm generally not a beer drinker, but I enjoyed the cider and stout. The room they had us in was cramped... More

Fun tour of the whole brewery and lots of free samples before and after the tour. Interesting to be able to try any/all of the beers on tap and you get a free pint glass to take home! The girl doing the tour was delightful and a great multi-tasker! Highly recommended.

Inspire of the late hour, not only that we got thorough explanations about the beers, we also got some helpful tips for our trip. The beers we... More

First. let me say the beer is very good. I have taken brewery tours in the US and now Canada. Some of the product has been better than others. This was a good one. My experience wasn't all good though. First there is a $25C charge for the tour. That is the most I have ever paid for any tour... More

Went for lunch today. Waited for 20 minutes to get service. I ordered a light lime draft to drink. Server comes back, "we're out". Next I tried a honey brown draft. Server comes back "we're out of that too. We do have a new pilsner..." I ordered that and it was good. The food was good...had the salmon special. Maybe... More

Nice spot, fair food, I would guess the most of it is the prepacked packaged type, Really enjoyed the beers in the past but now they have gone mainsteam, taste like anything you can get from Molson or Labatts
