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

We were there last month as part of a focus group and got a tour of the brewery included. It seems as though Big Rock is trying to get in touch with their roots again as a craft brewery. There are a number of fabulous new beers coming out!

This was an adventure. This beer is excellent and you get to be a sampler when taking the tour. Educational.

Probably one of the best-kept secrets for lunch and brewery tour, but I recall with great admiration and humour an AGM at a different venue with no beer wherein one of the personally-picked directors commented on the perfect blend of brew and bucks for the proprietor and then a lawyer/father/owner exchange with lawyer/son/shareholder ensued. It was classic stuff and Mr.... More
