Sat on the patio on canada day, ambiance was lively with a live bands doing a decent job, beer was great but the heifenweisen was a bit on the hoppy side for my taste(seams to be common practice in ontario) the fruit beer all tasted good except the hibiscus one, maybe just a personal taste but... Service was pretty slow... More

If you are thinking of visiting the Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery in downtown Barrie, Just DO it! What a wonderful place, almost magical; excellent beers, fantastic staff, clean as a whistle, free tours available, everything as it should be. For the past 4 years my girlfriend Colleen and I have visited each Canada Day and make a ritual of sitting... More

I had been to this brewery before and was not able to take in the tour. This time I was able to take in the tour. The tour guide was informative and engaging. She knew the product well and was able to answer questions with ease. The tour is not long - about fifteen minutes or so. It provides some... More

My partner and I along with our son and his SO took the brewery tour this summer. We were quite disappointed when we showed up 15-20 minutes before the scheduled tour and were told we had missed the "tasting" and had to be there earlier. Oh well! We were told that if we purchased a glass we could have a... More

If you only like standard, domestic beers, do yourself a favour: pop in to this eccentric brewery and expand your pallet. The energetic staff, free samples and brief tour make the flying monkey experience enjoyable. I've been on too many long-winded brewery tours, which makes the 20-minute efficiency of this one the best I've been on. They spend a good... More

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, I was disappointed in this tour. It is a very small brewery and really not much to see. The whole tour took about 10 minutes and we waited about 30 minutes for it, as there was only one a day at 2PM. Of course we did a beer tasting while we waited, which was... More

We visited the Flying Monkeys brewery on August 24th. I had googled it, it sounded cool...off we went! What a pleasant surprise! Now keeping in mind that I'm not usually a beer person, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the beers and the tour. Thought it would be a nice anniversary excursion for the husband, but I enjoyed it just as... More

Great tasting beer, we went with Anti-Gravity as our choice of 6 different taste tests. The staff were filled with laughter and created a wonderful environment to taste their own beer. If you are travelling through Barrie, this is a must stop. Situated right down town and close to all of the amenities that the lakefront offers. Great non-touristy items... More

We went here on a whim, but were so happy we did! Alexia, the beautiful girl who served us, was friendly and knowledgeable. The beer was soooo good, and there was a variety of non-touristy items we were able to buy for friends/family. We had a great time and will likely return EVERY time we visit Barrie!
