We usually like to take a drive down here and buy a case or two of beer, and go for a walk on the trail. Be aware that parking is pretty annoying and limited here, especially if they have a delivery coming or going; the delivery truck often takes up most of the parking lot. I've never had time to...

Being the only brewery on the island, this place is worth the visit. The lineup was way too long to actually tour the brewery and the price too steep for the 3 of us so we purchased a 6 pack and sat on the deck outback and took in the beautiful scenery. Well worth the hour or so we spent... More

Home cooked food, local beer and a charming atmosphere are topped off with genuine Newfoundland music on Friday nights. Don't miss it!

Quidi Vidi doesn't take itself seriously but they have some seriously good beers. The tour begins with a very entertaining history and tasting session.

Everyone needs to visit this place while in St. John's. The brewery is in such a picture perfect location. The tour started off with tasting of 5 different beers and learning about the stories that went with each beer, and their history. Our tour guide (I can't remember his name but he was tall with longer brown hair) was really... More

We went to the Quidi Vidi Brewery on Doors Open Day in St. John's. Probably not the best day to go, but it was just around the corner from Signal Hill, so we went. This is a quaint little brewery and as enthralling as the tour was, the entire small district is much like any postcard you have seen of... More

As a young dad I loved taking my kids to factories as an educational experience. As an older guy I still like to learn how things are made. This beer tour is one of the best I've been on. Informative and fun for sure, with lots of tastings along with history, our guide was fantastic. We had to stay for... More

They recently switched over to their fall beer tasting schedule. We showed up expecting to be able to get the 12pm tasting on a Tuesday, but because there was no change to their website we didn't know that they only offer them Wed-Fri for fall. We were a bit disappointed. Bought a couple souvenirs and left. I'm sure it would... More

Sept 10, 1 pm tour. Great tour guide. Sorry but can't remember his name. He made the tour informative and fun. Who knew newfoundlanders loved their beer so much. Yummy beer tasting especially the iceberg beer. Lovely setting. We hope your local brewery continues its success. Cheers!

Everything about it was wonderful. The staff were incredible. We went for the kitchen party and it was a great experience. I would definitely go again.
