The tour of the brewery was very informative. You have to climb up and stairs for the tour. Good shoes and stamina. Excellent info on the process from start to finish. Recycling glass bottles etc. great souvenir shop.

Fell in love with Kokanee on a trip summer 2013 and swore to make it to the brewery on this year's motorcycle trip. Mission accomplished!

I was the last tour of the day on... More

We arrived earlier or late for an tour since we had been traveling from Banff, Alberta but the staff greeted us quickly and allowed us to sign up for the next tour about an hour and half later. Which allowed us to look around Creston a bit and to get some things that we needed. The tour was interesting with... More

We visited the Brewery on a weekend so unfortunately were unable to watch the bottling. Very informative and well worth the $3.00 weekend rate. The store items, however, are vastly overpriced.

We loved the tour! It was about an hour in total and we saw where they brew the beer, learned about different temperatures for different beers, as well as seeing them package bottles and cans. We learned a lot about the recycling process if cans and bottles within Canada and the States. Totally worth it- AND amazing full pints at... More

They make the touring process a lot of fun. The staff are really interested in their jobs, and it shows. Whenever we have house guests who are newcomers to Creston, we bring them here.

We had a tour on Aug. 8th. It was very informative. Nastassia, our tour guide was great, very knowledgable and pleasant. She didn't mind all our questions, weren't rushed and the nice cold beer at 10 in the morning was a real treat :) We'd recommend the tour without hestitation. Our only concern was that if you were simply travelling... More
