    Visiting family and decided to venture out. We read the reviews on the brewery before going. Do purchase tickets in the morning for the afternoon tour. Very worth it. The fellow leading the beer tasti...  more »

    We did not do the tour but visited Quidi Vidi, where we stopped at the brewery gift shop. We sample beer from this craft brewery in many places but especially liked the Iceberg beer.  more »

    I make a point of visiting this brewery everytime I go to St.John's. The Iceberg beer is one thing I purchase and bring back. The walk in behind the brewery is scenic, further down the road you can hike down to the waters edge.

    What a place to come to work every day. The tasting director, Adrian, was an awesome person to introduce us to Quidi Vidi beers. We got a true sense of history and flavour of the local beer. His appreciation for this beer is front and center. The whole environment surrounding the brewery is unique and charming. We brought a lunch with us from another local, Mary Browns, and enjoyed it on the pier with beers purchased from the gift shop. The locals were friendly and enjoyed putting on a show filleting the cod they just brought in. We enjoyed it so much we went back a second time. I wish it was available off the island.

    We expected to be able to sit down and get a couple of sampler size beers. Waited in line in the tiny gift shop for 10 mins only to be told the next taster option wasn't for another 45mins and there was only 2 spots left. We asked if there was anything to do for the 45 minute wait, but the cashier just pointed to the range of soaps in the gift shop. We left without trying anything. Waste of a drive and battle to get a parking spot.

Where to stay in St. John's

To appreciate the history and colorful architecture of North America's oldest colonial city, there's no better place to stay than in the city center. This popular neighborhood displays the city's iconic, brightly painted Victorian houses, with a selection of guesthouses and inns clustered around Government House. Staying just west of the city center, near the Memorial University of Newfoundland, works as a pleasant alternative, with the expansive Pippy Park right at your doorstep.
