  • Definitely worth the short trip from St John's! Located in a cute, pictuesque town, the tour was fun and the beer was great
  • Call to book a tour or tasting, if you don't want to wait. Beer tasting was fun, the host was hilarious. 1892 is my fav, excellent red ale
  • Beer tour and sampling was worth it as you get a good understanding of the beer market in Newfoundland as well as the province's key historic events from which they named some of their brews. Filming and taking pictures is prohibited during the visit in the brewhouse if the staff is working though, but it was understandable to respect staff's right to privacy. As I beer geek, I did find that their beer menu was poor with the fact that it is almost entirely made of blonde ales and lagers very accessible and not that flavorful. However, it reflects the province's beer drinking habits since light and crisp lagers occupy a good 60% of their beer consuming habits !
  • A very cute location, horribly busy on any day, so you'll look around for coffee. This is the place to buy a souvenir pack of iceberg beer in cute blue bottles. Try all the beer first, because I don't really like it.
  • Ok so here is my only gripe. We got there at 4 and it closed at 5:30. There is no tap room and the place just sells cases of beer if you missed the tours earlier in the day. Consolation prize is that you can drink these beers on the dock out back. Good beer, just wished it was more clear on the website.
