I have read some of the other reviews, and it seems that most folks don't really know what to expect from a beer tour. A beer tour is really just an excuse to go drink. If you are into the science of beer making, this is not really for you. But for $12 (I think) you get about $8 worth... More

Really nice tour. We went on a week-end so we got to see the whole facility. Lot's of information regarding the history of the brewery and the building. Great beer tasting. Tour guide was very friendly.

While tasting most of their beers, Quidi Vidi brewery tours give you some interesting information. Some history of the brewery, some history of Newfoundland and some basic beer making tidbits. Still nothing like the Iceberg beer though, so if you don't have time for the tasting, go with that one!

The tour is really neat! Not only is it free but you can try all of their different types of Ale. Its a lot of fun and neat to see how they make beer.

The tour is $10 per person. I like the history part of the brewery tour. It's a nice connection when you drink the beer from this brewer by knowing something behind the brewery and each kind of beer they offer. The tasting contained about 6 kind of beers they made and, of coz, iceberg beer. I would definitely recommend this... More

We took the 2pm brewery tour and tasting finding the story behind the brewery to be unique!! Excellent beer brewed in a small plant located in the tiny harbor of Quidi Vidi. The tour was funny and informative showing the various steps in making each type of beer. Great way to kill an hour and have few samples of local... More

We loved the tour, trying the beer and our guides were excellent. We had brunch nearby first and that was also wonderful. Try the Iceburg beer, you'll never look back!

We missed a tour time but the brewery along the water in this tiny town is quite a sight to see. Easy to get to. Beer from icebergs! Now who can boast that.

Great craft beer tasting experience Newfoundland style! Our host was funny and informative. The beer is great too. Parking is a challenge though!

My brother-in-law and I stopped in at Quidi Vidi Brewery for a beer tasting on our way through St. John's. We originally wanted to do a tour but got our times mixed up and missed the last one (it was full) so we settled for a tasting. We had a great time. Our host walked us through seven different beers... More
