Though we came a bit before closing time and where informed that we had missed the last guided tours, we were warmly invited to come inside, sit down and enjoy tasting some beers. 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

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!
