  • The tour was excellent. The guide, Erica, was amusing, engaging, informative, and a pleasure to be around. Her apparent enthusiasm for the company was contagious; she did an awesome job. The headsets worked well for my wife and I, and the tour itself was well structured with very nice touches to make it personal (e.g. bottle of beer given with date and time produced set as couple minutes before tour started). You made a customer out of me.
  • Fun and inexpensive place to visit just not for kids. The tour is really well put together and informative about the brew, building and history. A few free drinks along the way really helps too. While you wait they have great warm pretzels you can order. Definitely a must stop if you like beer. They only make one kind but it is really good.
  • It was a very hot day and we really wanted to join the tour, unfortunately it was too late. We asked for some beer and happily found out it was complimentary. We loved the beer and bought 1 litter bottle. The service was excellent. Loved the experience. Highly recommended.
  • We strolled by this gem on our way to the CN tower, and decided to drop in and take a quick peek. All four of us were promptly greeted with a Canadian smile and 4 free "samples" - about 8oz of ice cold, fresh beer. That got our attention to take a tour of the brewery. They handed us another full bottle of beer, and guide you through every step of the creation of Steam Whistle Pilsner they so lovingly craft. Very interesting, very informative.. this is a great group of friends and brewing expersts that love what they do, and do it well. After the tour, we were of course topped off, and invited to hang out and enjoy the local, ever changing artwork posted around the pub. We continued to talk to our guide. Gwen, for over an hour, who helped us plan the rest of our visit to Toronto, told us all the great local spots to continue our night, and even made us, not one, but two hand drawn maps of her favorite spots. We hung out, had many more beers, bought a 6 pack on the way out, and can all honestly say it was our favorite (and most wallet-friendly) thing we did in all of Toronto (all of Canada, actually). Excellent. We love you Gwen.
  • Took the kids to ride the little train. They really liked it. Only problem I have is they make an adult ride with the kids but charge the adult more for their ticket. Doesn't make sense to me. If the kids can only ride with an adult then the adult should be free ticket or atleast discounted. Otherwise kids enjoyed the ride.
