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. They of course had a store with their brewery insignias on everything from caps to very... More

I live in Barrie and have always loved Flying Monkeys Anti Gravity but had never been to the brewery. My wife and I decided to stop in there at the start of a date night and try out some of the other brews. After having a few different selections we decided on a beer and ordered up a pint which...

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!

I must say that the staff at Flying Monkeys is incredibly generous in their sample selection and pours. Though we found their beer not to our taste, I understand the allure. The tour was informative, but incredibly detailed. If you're new to brewery tours, I'd recommend it, but if not, the length of their tour (90min) can wear on you.... More
