Any place where you get handed a taste of beer the moment you walk in is a great place to be! My boyfriend was visiting from Ontario, and I'm from Calgary however I'd never been to the Big Rock brewery, so we figured we'd give it a look!

Spent a fantastic afternoon at Big Rock Brewery. Cody, our tour guide, was awesome! Very good in explaining all the different beers and very thorough in describing the beer making process. And then of course there's the actual beer tasting...you start off with sampling beer while waiting for the tour to start and plenty more sampling during and after the... More

I have been on this brewery tour a few times, and I love seeing everything that goes into the final product. Certainly a great place to take visitors, and the tour ends with some samples of their product. Well worth the price of admission! I have taken people visiting from out of town and they had a blast!

Went to Big Rock Brewery on a rainy Sunday and had an awesome time. After a short intro From our tour guide Russ, we sampled and learnt about the many beers and ciders they have to offer, some new and some old favourites fresher than ever. The tour was entertaining and informative. Definitely worth the $.

Lunch in the restaurant was fantastic and a perfect pre-tour stop. We paid for a group tour, but we lucked out and were the only two guests. It was a ton of fun to chat with the guide and learn about the brewing process. All the staff were extremely kind. We felt like part of the Big Rock family by... More

If you're looking to get educated on flavour, quality, and the grounds-roots of beer, than this is an great tour. The guides are evidently passionate about their jobs, you go through each part of the facility ( even thought it does get quite sweaty!) and no question we asked remained unanswered. There was cider as well as beer available on... More

He also gave us the history, plans, and goals of Big Rock. We then went through the brewery and he... More

This was by far the best brewery tour I've been on. We had Colin as our tour guide and he was super knowledgeable and was very passionate about beer. It was a great learning experience and an all around great time. If you enjoy a good pint or happen to be in the east end of the city I definately... More
