Wow!!!!!!!!!!! What an awesome tour. If you are visiting Toronto this is a must.

“Canadian beer ambassadors - ever a warm welcome!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Drove up from Boston toToronto for a family event, and first stop off the Gardiner Expressway (take Spadina) was The Roundhouse. Looking to bring back some 'two-fours' (we Yanks call it a case) of this refreshing, happy pilsner…clearly the best being made in Oh Canada right now! And wanted it as fresh as possible, nach.

Huge construction right next to brewery - eh, where to park? There's an underground public pay lot beneath the area, but I wanted to park with the big boy SteamWhistle delivery trucks, hang in the brewhouse, chatter, and soak up the culture.

Did so, bought my 24s in bottles (no cans for me), and staff member walked me right into heart of the beast, and helped me pack my cases at loading dock. Fresh? Well, er…the beer was made just 5 days prior.

Our second visit, and this was the jewel in the crown: relaxed, gracious, friendly reception. May be an 8+ hour drive for us, but this kind of welcome is truly world class! Makes the brew taste all the better.

The quality of the beer and the warmth of the entire staff makes Steam Whistle EXCEPTIONAL!

“Excellent tour, excellent beer”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

This is one of the best brewery tours I've been on. It was short but sweet with two cold beers and extra tasters and a very good deal on a 6 pack to take home. Tour made special by the very enigmatic guide who was very informative and fun. Also the beer is top notch, definitely recommend a visit
