Great tour of the brewery for a good price! Experience the different beers Big Rock make with an excellent unlimited tasting! Hosts are always great and knowledgeable. Get in depth insight on how beer is produced right from the seeds to the final bottling!

We visited Big Rock for a tour as locals and were extremely impressed by our tour of the brewery! The tour lasted for about 90 minutes and was full of interesting and fun facts about brewing beer and the evolution of Big Rock. I learned a tonne about the science of brewing and walked away wanting to learn more. From... More

We visited the brewery on a sunny Saturday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised with the tour. We thought it would be interesting but the guide we had showed so much passion and knowledge that we learned more than we ever thought we would abut beer! Definitely recommended for anyone that enjoys beer and a fun and educational day out.

My boyfriend and I went for a tour of Big Rock and were not disappointed! You sample as many beers as you want before and after the tour. Colin was our host for the afternoon, and he was fantastic- very passionate, clearly loves his job, and is extremely knowledgeable. Be sure to stop by!

I visited the brewery with my adult family and it was a fun afternoon. The staff is generous with the drinks, so you will mostly get your tour cost back drinks, and there's lots of variety to choose from. I'm generally not a beer drinker, but I enjoyed the cider and stout. The room they had us in was cramped... More

Fun tour of the whole brewery and lots of free samples before and after the tour. Interesting to be able to try any/all of the beers on tap and you get a free pint glass to take home! The girl doing the tour was delightful and a great multi-tasker! Highly recommended.

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
