Reviewed August 23, 2012

They have some "hundreds years ago" soldiers to show you and tell you different stories about the French and British war affairs. Good to learn those history when you are a Canadian or being a visitor.

“ICE BERG STRAIT AHEAD”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

after walking a long time i finally found this great brewery. The tasting tour at 10 bucks plus tax is to expensive and person giving the tour seemed to be going through the motions.

“Don't Waste your time unless driving there”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Told it was only a 10 minute walk and turned out to be 45 minutes and when we arrived there is one small pub in the basement of someone's home that reminds you of being in a Stephen King novel and you start to worry if you will make it out alive. One or two picture opportunties and that is it. If you go during the day and into beer you can tour the brewery but there is only homes to see there.

“Quaint village in heart of the city!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Very neat to see! A little fishing village with a brewery located here. There are trails to explore! This is hidden down near Quidi Vidi Lake. The homes here are so close to the road it is so cool to see!
