“Unexpected fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Well worth ticket price, you end up with samples,bottle of beer and also more samples and a small gift to take home. All for the price of a beer and tip at a bar !
The tour is just fun, not a boring tour,not reallt inro beer but was really a nice surprize.

“Don't miss out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

If you are visiting the CN Tower or the Rogers Centre just cross the road to the Steam Whistle Brewery - you won't regret it. The brewery offers tours included in the tour price are some free samples and a souvenir either a glass, bottle opener or a 6 pack of Pilsner depending on the tour you opt for. The tour is very informative and the guides are funny and very knowledgeable. We had a great time and we enjoyed the beer.

“Brewery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went after a ball game and the place was packed. It's not my type of beer but it's a neat attraction.
