This was an excellent tour of a brewery that pioneered craft brewing in Alberta. Very informative and extremely comprehensive. The tour was fun and interesting. The tasting following the tour was fantastic as well as we were able to enjoy all the samples we could handle, which was quite a lot... There was much discussion of different beers from around...

Super informative during the tour, you get to see everything and test out all the beers Big Rock makes, on tap before and after the tour.

The tour gave us free taste testing of their beer before AND after the tour, and even during the tour, we were given a taste testing of their grasshopper wheat ale directly out of the fermenter (which is honestly the best beer I've ever tasted.) I think our tour guide's name was Colin. We got a free pint glass at... More

What an awesome tour! I learned so much about Big Rock's history and so much about the brewing process that I didn't know before. Our tour guide, Garrett, was fantastic. He really explained brewing in a way that I could understand. It was really interesting to hear about Alberta's brewing history and the development of Big Rock Brewery. I especially... More

By brother and I took my dad to do the tour as a birthday present. Our guide was a great down to earth guy who was obviously passionate about brewing, and poured a great number of samples for us! Would have been better to see the facility in operation (brings out the engineer in me) but the tour was well... More

Very interesting tour and tour guide Colin was very knowledgeable, The before and after sampling was very good, many different samples and more than an ounce available. Really got to know how they got started,where the name came from and the whole making beer process. Well worth any admission charge.

Had a great tour of the Big Rock Brewery today. Our guide, Cody, was very knowledgeable, and entertaining as well. Excellent facility and a large variety of beers and ciders were available for sampling. Cody gave a very informative description of each item. I would highly recommend taking this tour.

I went on this tour on May 17, 2015 long weekend. Our tour guide was Tatenda. He was very personable and knowledgeable and made our tour a memorable experience. First we were given a tour of the brewery. It was a large brewery, but very clean and well maintained. We had to wear white hairnets and safety glasses, which makes... More
