A comprehensive tour of a complete brewery. It appears a lot of thought was put into moving guests about in a restored railroad roundhouse. The cost of the tour is well worth it. You get to sample the beer several times and pick out a nice souvenir. The exhilaration you get from the wonderful staff might exceed the buzz from the brew.

The tour was very informative about the history behind Steam Whistle.
The staff were all very friendly.
The tour guide was exceptional and took in good humour a few rowdy people on the tour.
Great 30 minute tour - worth every minute!

Good Beer Folks!

I got to take a tour of the Steam Whistle Brewery that my niece had arranged. Well not sure what to expect, I really enjoyed hearing about this company and tasting their beer. Hearing about how this company was formed and how they promote their product was very interesting. Our tour guide was very sincere about what he told us. I really seemed that he enjoyed what he does. If you are in downtown Toronto and are looking for something to do, I would recommend visiting this place and going on their tour. The cost is only 15.00 per person and you end up getting more than that in their beer.

Hip, fun, free beer, informative and friendly. Sarah W. was a great tour guide! Brought a group from work today and they were impressed with the modern flair on a classic pilsner beer. Its so good!!! Souvenirs and a full belly of beer brought home :) And you can hang out and drink beer and socialize when you're done.
