  • Very informative, knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide. Tour is not long and there are a few stairs to climb so those with limited mobility issues may not be able to do full tour but will still be able to enjoy the tour through the headphone sets that they provide. Seems like everyone who works there, does so because they enjoy being there. The food/gift area was a pleasant surprise..great food that was delicious and not overly expensive as well as several board games to play while you enjoy your steam whistle at a leisurely pace.
  • The tour was informative giving the history of the building that is a historic site and the company. Our tour guide had a great sense of humour and easily answered all of the groups questions. We thoroughly enjoyed the samples, stayed for lunch after our tour and purchased some souvenirs. I was very impressed with the ingredient list and the facility where it all happens. The fact that it all Canadian is also a big selling feature. Steam Whistle will be my beer of choice from now on.
  • Every chance I get, I like to do a beer tour, with friends. The tour was quick and very informative. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed a cool beer at the end of the tour. The atmosphere and the staff are very accommodating and friendly. It’s a great activity to do with a friend from out of town and have them experience a local Toronto brewery. Highly recommend.
  • We were welcomed into the brewery by very friendly staff. Francis was one of our favourites making sure we had a nice cold beer sample before our tour! He was very personable and a great addition to the experience. We then started our tour with Christian. He was friendly and captivating, telling us the history of the brewery along with personal stories and jokes, while we enjoyed a delicious cold beer! Thanks to these two staff members and the brewery for making our visit so welcoming and great!
  • Wow! Awesome experience today. Greeted by staff right away, ordered some lunch and a tour for 2 and the price was very good. Food was amazing. Robyn gave us a tour a she was fantastic! Thanks for a great time!
