Read about this place, and was recommended by our B&B. We stopped in for pre-dinner tastings and left with 2 six packs and 3 bottles. The red-headed guy was so helpful (sorry, we forgot your name), and let us now of places at home we could try their products.

The tour was standard and the building is plain but the ale was very good on tap. Fresh, crisp and reminiscent of those I've previously enjoyed in England.

I recommend visiting it last and only if you have time. The ale is available in the LCBO and you don't risk leaving it in a hot trunk to spoil.

We visited this microbrewery a few years ago, I guess soon after it opened. They had a few beers on tap and they were pretty good. Upon our return this year with visitors from overseas, the owner (brewmaster) was awesome and gave the visitor a great tour and even shared some not for sale brew (samples) with us. I will keep going back as long as the owner (nice guy) keeps making the darker beers for the market.

We just came back from a lovely stay on Prince Edward County, and as per our other reviews, we had a very good time there and had nothing but great comments to share about the places we stayed at, ate at, and visited. Barley Days Brewery was, however, our only disappointment for this trip. We came in the brewery and were greeted by a very nice young lady who was just stopping by to pick up something and who kindly explained to us the various beers produced onside while her colleague was helping another customer. Once he was done, she left us, probably assuming that he would take it over from there. We wanted to sample 1 or 2 beers and then purchase a case of our favorite as we are microbrewery beers amateurs, but the arrogant man in question never even LOOKED at us, and simply sighted whenever he was coming near us, avoiding eye contact. We waited until he was done doing whatever he was doing and then thought he was coming our way, and finally another couple walked in and he jumped at them asking what they wanted. This happened another time when another family walked in. We left, quite angry that we could not be served, and very, very disappointed at this place. Do NOT expect to taste the beers before you purchase them, another couple asked to taste one and it was made very apparent that this was highly annoying the arrogant employee in question. If you do not want to offer tasting, that is fine, but simply do not advertise your ''tasting room''. Once again however, this was our ONLY bad experience on Prince Edward County, we highly recommend visiting the County.

Local breweries are always interesting to visit and this one is no exception. I am not a huge fan of "industrial" beers and this certainly is not. My favourite is the Wind & Sail, combining The County's barley production and fishing histories.
One of these days, being a fan of porters, I'll have to make it out to the brewery in November/December to taste the Yuletide Cherry Porter.
