We got to the brewery 1/2 hour before the last tasting tour of the day. We bought a couple of Iceberg beers to sample outside while we were waiting. Yum! A delicious light tasting, refreshing brew. The samples of 5 of their beers were generous and you could 'win' extra beer by answering questions correctly.

Great brews and live band to entertain the room on the second level. Glass windows all around showing the view of the water.

Took a walk from downtown St. John's around Quidi Vidi Lake and then into the quiet fishing village. Took a walk out past the brewery to the opening into the village and on the way back stopped and took a look. Glad we stopped. Tour was short and the beer was excellent. Even the kids enjoyed it who didn't drink.

We walked here from the Sheraton, which took about 40 minutes. The view and the location of the brewery are alone worth the walk. As mentioned by others, there are only a few tours and tastings a day and we weren't lucky enough to participate. We did however buy some beer from the fridge, which was delightful on a hot... More

This brewery is not only intersting to learn about, but located in a picturesque little fishing village on the outskirts of St. John's. Their beer is making a big hit across Canada (made with glacier water) and tastes great!

We go to Quidi Vidi Brewery several times per year. We were there every Friday in July and one in August, 2016. Always a great time. Great vibe for people over the age of 25 (lol). Sometimes they serve food onsite and other times they have pop up delis. Good band and lots of dancing. Oh and I forgot, the... More

This place is difficult to get to, has almost no parking and only offers tasting as very specific times. All I wanted was to sit down try some beer, but they do not offer that casually. If you want to do a tasting, check for the times ahead, make sure you are there early, and hope they didn't sell out... More

We expected to be able to sit down and get a couple of sampler size beers. Waited in line in the tiny gift shop for 10 mins only to be told the next taster option wasn't until 4pm. There was also only 2 spots left. We asked if there was anything to do for the 45 minute wait, but the... More

There are few things in life which can count as a bliss. One of them being a hot summers day, a truly amazing beer and a wonderful view. All of them comes as a package deal when you visit this lovely brewery. The available beers are a combination of unique and familiar tastes. Was really blown away by the Iceberg... More

We had a great visit and tour at Quidi Vidi brewery in July 2016. While many of the beers are available throughout St John's there were others that were new to us this day. Great tour guide and enjoyed how the tour content was more about the brewery and location history instead of going on about how beer is made... More
