    My wife and I took the tour and were very impressed. Lasted almost an hour and was very informative. You get to drink beer while on the tour which was a definite plus. Our hotel (Delta) had free tour ...  more »

    A nice visit to a brewery, just walked in they give you a taste of beer and then there are others. Very interesting though it doesn't last long around. I have to say that beer is good.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this brewery and the tour that accompanied it. It's located in the old railroad turntable and offers opportunity to rent out its space for special events and weddings! The beer is really good and not too happy. It's a German style pilsner and damn is it good. No parking anywhere. I highly suggest public transportation or walking

    Perfect location, attentive bar staff, but the tour is the best thing. You can easily fit it into a small part of your day and learn some modern Toronto history! As a manufacturing geek, seeing their process first hand was cool. My guide was also amazing and stayed with us for a while afterwards to chat in a way more relaxed and natural manner. The unfiltered beer you get at the end of the tour is fantastic - I preferred it to the normal beer!

    The service is excellent, and for some reason, the crowd is as well. Good beer, joyful ambience. Believe it or not, you can have your kids on a push cart and get drunk at the same time. It's a lovely place that shouldn't be overlooked.

    Went for a tour and tasting. Our guide was nice, you could tell she was very proud of the place she worked. Apparently we went too close to closing time because nothing was happening while we were there. For the price of admission I would at least like to see one of the machines running. It was also very very warm in there, both inside the factory area and in the bar area... I couldn't wait to get outside to cool off.

    From Australia and we were happy with getting a sample beer and a bottle of beer before the tour started then got another beer and sample beer at the end. Very relaxed and knowledgeable tour guide. So worth the cost just for the amount of beer you got.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
