  • Quidi Vidi doesn't take itself seriously but they have some seriously good beers. The tour begins with a very entertaining history and tasting session. 
  • Everyone needs to visit this place while in St. John's. The brewery is in such a picture perfect location. The tour started off with tasting of 5 different beers and learning about the stories that we...  read more »
  • We went to the Quidi Vidi Brewery on Doors Open Day in St. John's. Probably not the best day to go, but it was just around the corner from Signal Hill, so we went. This is a quaint little brewery and ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Visited from Ontario. Been here 3 times in the last 5 years. Beer is the best in the world. I mean that with passion. Especially the 1892ale. The tours are decent. I strongly recommend the beer.
  • Took in a tour and tasting. The presentation seemed a little scripted but the guide lent his own personality to the tour so it was enjoyable and informative. Iceberg beer may be a gimmick, but it's certainly a clean tasting and enjoyable brew. Absolutely recommend a visit for local hospitality, decent beer, and great scenery.
  • Awesome tour, lovely people, fantastic beer....what more could you ask for. Personally I would recommend the 45 min walk from st John's if that's where you are staying as it's really nice and builds a nice thirst
  • Great beer, great staff. Booked the party room once and had a fantastic time. Also a great place to get a good view of Quidi Vidi and a pint with visitors.
