Was a great day. Beer was great. Adam did a great job on the tour. The facility was very clean and a great place to sample all the Big Rock brews. I would go again.

We went for a late lunch, unfortunately, they only do lunch Monday through Friday and this Saturday. Instead we got to do a taste test for six of their beers. That alone was worth the trip. They had a great guy serving. He was very knowledgeable and a great personality. Hopefully we can go again when they're serving lunch. We... More

My dad and I are locals, but decided to take this tour as a way of learning more about our favourite local brew. Cody, our tour guide, really knew his stuff and was super friendly. He had a nice way of presenting the information (infusing it with humour) that kind of made it like learning from a friend over a... More

We had some visitors to Calgary and decided to do something different. This was exceptionally fun, informative and tasty! Brenna, our tour guide was bubbly and passionate about the product! Look forward to our next visit and the many delicious tastings that come with it!

Second time coming to Big Rock for lunch, and it was excellent. I had the schnitzel burger, it was awesome. The schnitzel was nice and crisp to the bite and still moist on the inside. The pretzel bun has to be the best I've ever had fresh and the perfect density. Had it with their Mosaic Lager and was great... More

Kudos to Cody! We have been to several craft brew pubs and breweries in the United States, but my husband says, "Big Rock Brewery -- well it's all good!" We stopped in on a whim on our Canadian Rockies whirlwind visit, and we were pleasantly surprised. We asked Cody if we could get a tour of the brewery and he... More

The tour itself was very cool. It was my first ever brewery tour, and learned a lot about beer and the beer making process. Our tour guide was Tatenda, he was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour starts and ends with samples of all the beers they make, this was maybe my favourite part. After the tour, they did not... More
