“Lovely tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Having done a number of brewery tours over the years I was very impressed by this one. Cascade has a natural advantage in that it is situated in a truly beautiful part of the world. The tour was very entertaining even though it was a weekend and the brewery not in full operation. The tour centre is set in some gorgeous gardens with a lovely restaurant and bar and we enjoyed a cheap and delicious lunch beforehand and the free beers after. (You get 3 beers and lunch for $15 from a set menu as a part of the tour price.) We were very impressed with all of the tour staff and enjoyed our afternoon immensely.

“Worth a visit to this iconic brewery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Very informative tour, ability to taste a variety of beers and ciders, lovely gardens to walk and relax in, tour lunch for $15 each great value and great food. Not a lot of parking though but well worth the visit/tour

“Fun tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The tour of Cascade Brewery is great! The tour lasts about 90 minutes and you get to learn so much about how beer is made. After the tour, you get free samples of the beer. The restaurant and bar are located in a beautiful area!

“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Enjoyed out tour, try and do on a weekday as it clearly states it is only a Monday to Friday operation. $25 per person goes for 1 hr 15 mins and then 3 7oz samples of choice at the end. Tour guide Lee was entertaining and informative. Lovely old building in beautiful surrounds.
