Best local brewery

We sampled a few local breweries and in my opinion, this one provided the most variety and the best beer.

Loved it. I was looking to have food and their beer, but you have to buy by the case, although they do have a two pack. Would have loved to sit there for lunch and a couple of pints, but it was lovely to crack a couple, sit at the picnic tables and meet some of the locals!

Beer made from melted ice bergs! Newfoundland is a fascinating place. Beer was tasty. I am glad we visited the area. The boats were busy and the sun was out and the beers quite cold - good times! If the condo construction is any indication, quaint will be replaced with trendy and the flavor of the area will be changed.

We arrived thinking the brewery would also have a restaurant where you could enjoy a glass of beer and maybe have something to eat, so we were a bit disappointed and did not go on a tour since we were famished.

We were in Nfld for 2 weeks from Ontario and loved every minute despite the weather. We kept seeing people drinking iceberg beer and a waitress told us to go to the Quidi Vidi Brewery to buy cheaper and what a quaint, interesting place besides the iceberg beer!

We did a tasting "tour", with a sample of all the beers currently being brewed at Quidi Vidi. The commentary was fun and entertaining. The beer was good with a healthy sample of each. Don't let the picture fool you. Servers would pour a fresh sample for each beer as we moved from one beer to the next. Less glasses... More

On a whim we decided to walk here from our hotel in St. John's. It was a bit of a hike, but it ended up being well worth it. At first I was a little put off by the lay out at the entrance of the the brewery. They had just finished giving a tour/tasting to a large tour group,... More

We did the tour and sampling. Our tour guide was very funny and knowlegeable about the beer and the area. For $10 we had 5 samples - great deal. One note - no open toed shoes or sandals. I would definitely recommend taking the tour.

Nice little brewery with some nice brews. During the week when the plant is operating they offer a tasting with seven different beers. On the weekend, when the plant isn't running, you get a tour and a tasting of 5 beers.

QV is in a gorgeous location on the outskirts of St. John's, and the passionate staff there make you feel extremely welcome. Adrian couldn't have been more enthusiastic about both QV's history and their beer. It is well worth visiting Quidi Vidi Brewery. Do it!
