“Come for the tour, stay for the beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

I took the free Sunday tour, and it was basically a 30 min talk about how beer is made, and a short history behind the company. Well worth the time though. Especially since you can sip on a beer during the tour. And after.

“Loud!”

A loud place with picnic tables, but I can say "been there, done that"! Not even my beer drinking husband wanted to hang around!!

“A good insight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

As a long time fan of their beers it was an obvious place to visit. Easy to find from the subway just a short 10 minute walk. On the day of my visit the part of the brewery was closed due to a refurb but areas visited were well worth it. Hit the bar after the tour to sample the selection on offer.

“Beers Beers & more beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Alot of fun and a good Weekend spot to try some beers and take the "tour". The tour is more a history of the brewery than a tour but still interesting and worth seeing. Be prepared to line up on the weekends. Can be a bit or line for beer and entry so take plenty of cash and load up.

“And then God made beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This brewery is a very busy place. Although the tour is not really a tour but more of a talk on how beer is made and how the company came about, it is still worth listening to. Beer tokens are purchased for $5 each or 5 for $20 then you line up for your beer. The high content beer did cost 2 tokens. Judging by the crowds here this is a popular thing to do.
