Love it

I love their beer. Close to home. Very friendly people. Just wish the beer wasn't priced so high, but the taste of the beer is really good.

Have been a few times for the tour, great room upstairs that holds 60 or so, wonderful downtown venue for a private party. Great Bar and room. Great staff and organization.

Like I said, it was free. There was a party of middle aged, tipsy men who was along with us. I'd say that there was too many of us for the tour. The guide didn't seem too knowledgable and didn't have enough of a voice projection to really hear him. We were genuinely interested in the tour and walked away... More

Hello Christine, Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. I'm sorry you felt eclipsed by a rowdy bunch at our brewery. Bruce, our tour guide, is a soft-spoken gentleman, but it's a shame you couldn't hear him. He's a veritable font of breweriana factoids! We want everyone to feel welcome into the culture of the Flying Monkeys and Ontario... More

In the heart of downtown, so it's easy to drop in. The building is not only of historical vintage fitting in on Dunlop Street, an extension to the rear is well designed to look natural. Kudos! Regular tours are offered; tour leader Bruce was interesting and informative. Small samples are offered at the front. The brewery's name is ultra-kitschy, as... More

A group of us decided to descend on the brewery for a tour and tasting. Unfortunately/fortunately, it was the day on which they were adding brewing tanks to their operations -- the first time since the brewery opened. Because of this, we couldn't actually go into the brewing room, but we did get to watch the gigantic brewing vats being... More

We walked into this little brewery, and were greeted by a lovely young lady who immediately offered sample beers. These were not stingy samples either. We toured the brewery with an informative gentlemen, who answered our questions, and provided some good laughs as well.

I live in Barrie and have always loved Flying Monkeys Anti Gravity but had never been to the brewery.

Visited primarily to sample current brewing offerings - had a great variety from IPA to Nutbrown to Stouts and even a terrific pumpkin ale on offer. Product is readily available in the store and staff are friendly and happy to chat about their brews ; would happily recommend to other beer lovers!
