Great little brewery - guide was very informative and funny, and really took her time to explain the back story of the company and the different beers. Tour lasts about 45 minutes (tasting in the beginning), and it's $10/person. For those that are not participating in the tasting, there is no cost to still go on the tour!

Head down to Quidi Vidi Brewery on Friday nights for some great beer, music and people. Doors open at 6.30pm and it is very popular, I've been living 5 minutes walk from the Brewery for nearly 10 years now and didn't know about it until the neighbours invited us down and they arrived a few months ago. Also can recommend... More

The guide has an excellent presentation. Add a little beer and everyone has a great time. The view of the harbor is great.

We tried the flight of beers from the lightest to the darkest. All through Newfoundland we had been trying the different local beers but this visit to the brewery was made memorable by the young lady who led our tasting. She was full of anecdotes about the brewery which added to the enjoyment (especially the story about Professor Dick). All... More

Had an extra day on my trip, so I had some extra time to explore, I'm certainly glad we stopped here! Our tour director had great stories to share, and we all laughed, and the beer was delicious! I feel less bad about bringing home my blue bottle, since he gave us permission :-) Explore the area around, great photo... More

We did the tasting/tour which was very generous and the host was a fun beer geek who kept us entertained relating his self-deprecating adventures in brewing. The location is really quaint and alone is worth the visit. But beer-lovers won't be disappointed, especially with the novel Iceberg lager.

The guide provided us with tastings of their 6 beers. Each had a history lesson and we learned lots about Quidi Vidi and St. John's. Great beer!

Have taken a number of brewery tours, so I decided to skip that, and do just the sampling. Very much worthwhile. They have a nice variety and present a story for each one. While I did pickup a six pack of their Cream Ale, the Iceberg beer I found was too light for me.

We enjoyed this outing - the staff, from the cashiers to the tour guide, all seemed to enjoy what they do. There was not much to the tour of the micro brewery itself but the beer tasting and the commentary made up for what the actual tour lacked.
