Big Rock Brewery is located in an industrial district on the East side of Calgary. But don't let this deter you from visiting this fine Brewery. Big Rock has stepped up to the plate to accommodate visitors to their brewery. The visitor centre and tour around their facility is very professional, informative and well worth the drive out there.

This was the first brewery tour I've been to that was an actual working brewery. Previous tours such as the Heineken or Guinness brewery were more like museums or promotional tours. Whereas this was an informative tour of how the various beers are made. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The tour came with a free glass and... More

This is my preferred restaurant in the SE Calgary industrial area. Clean, great food and efficient service. Can't go wrong. I took my entire team here a couple weeks ago for lunch. They'll accomodate large groups. At some point we'll book a tour.

Many people do not know what all goes into making their favorite drinks. Well this is one way of finding out the whole process of beer making. You end the tour with a little taste testing of the products.

I was one of about 30 travel agents that that had a beer and dinner meeting at the Big Rock Brewery. There is plenty of space for large groups and we were served a wonderful Octoberfest meal, as well as an assortment of Big Rock Beer. The venue has plenty of outdoor parking and the building inside had interesting decor.

Excellent food prepared without European flair by an Austrian master chef. The food menu varies seasonably and pairs wonderfully with the Big Rock Beers on tap

It was so interesting to see the brewing process and to be right in the brewery. We also got a tasting at the end, and the shop has some great... More

A great way to spend an afternoon with friends. Russ was a great tour guide, who gave us lots of info about the Brewery including the history behind Big Rock. Very nice afternoon.

We went on the brewery tour on a Sunday afternoon in August. WOW! What a great experience. So worth the cheap price of $26. We took friends visiting from England and they enjoyed it thoroughly. Upon arrival we were greeted by our very friendly tour guide "T", who immediately offered us a sample of a Big Rock product of our... More
