  • Good beer. Nice location. Food offerings would be nice.
  • 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.
  • Charming place, had the chance to taste different beers and see the process of beer making.
  • 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.
