We were driving through so we stopped at Flying Monkeys to try some beer. Unlike many of the craft breweries that we visited, the samples were free. I loved the SmashBomb IPA. Now that I drank all of the beer that I purchased, I wish that I had bought more of it. The beer was excellent!!

Nice micro- brewery. Free samples. Can by drafts. Can take beer into tour. The people are extremely nice. The tour person (Katelyn sp?) was phenomenal. You get close up look at all equipment at all stages. Can take pictures anytime. Street parking meters at reasonable $2 per hour. There are local restaurants on same street too.

Nice store where you can mix your own 6-pack of fresh craft beer. No bar but a few taps so you can try the products. Decent IPA, needs a little more hoppiness...

We rented their party room last year to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. They were wonderful to work with, a lovely cozy room - great staff! We had our own caterer for our dinner. Great fun!

Long before the craft brewery's were popular, Robert Simpson ( Flying Monkeys ) opened in Barrie in a totally rebuilt historical building in downtown Barrie. Well worth the look and great beer!!

The free tour lasts about 45 minutes and is quite comprehensive. Followed by a free tasting of their fantastic brews, what more could you ask for? Don't miss it!
