Quite surprised by all of the positive reviews. Wasn't busy and there were a lot of staff, but service was slow and not particularly attentive. Average food but reasonably priced. Wouldn't go back.

Being a local, it's always a fun place to stop by when in the neighbourhood. Sample some brew and take a tour. The owners Andrea and Peter are lovely people, his messages under the caps are quirky and fun, lol.

Thank you for sharing! We're so happy to see "the natives" stopping by the Tap Room regularly. Historically, the brewery was part of the locals' regular routine, and we hope to bring that vibe back to our downtown. The Tap Room is a great place to meet friends, make plans, visit after work, or have cold craft beer before going... More

Excellent Service. Excellent Menu. 5 Star all the way. Caycee's service was beyond Excellent. She tended to every demand in a super busy environment in a professional and accountable way. A smile goes a long way in my book. Be sure to visit for some comfort food and good company.

Brewery offers 16 craft beers, ranging from 4% up to 2-3 10% brews. The sample tray is a good way to get a taste but some are so strong in taste that they leave the taste buds overwhelmed. I like hoppy ales so the Smashbomb Atomic IPA at 6% and 72 IBUs was a good compromise. Didn't eat, restaurant had... More

Great selection of craft beers - Amber Ale was our favourite. Very informative tour. Will be even better when the renovations are completed. Make sure you visit the downstairs to view the door and stair signage.

While the site was being renovated when we visited ...It was business as usual. Friendly and knowledgeable staff at the bar/counter. Lots of choice in brews. I like IPAs and hoppy ...two of the three I selected were excellent. Liked the fact I could pick,mix and match to make my own six pack.
