“Entertaining and fun tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

I visited in January with a group of friends after having won a VIP tour at a trade show. Josh, our guide, was entertaining and knowledgeable. The building was wonderfully restored, and the beer was good too!

“hippest brewery of Ontario...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

The brewery occupy half of the John Street Roundhouse which is a renovated locomotive roundhouse right in front of CN tower and Rogers Center. The tour wasn't that much interesting and/or informative and their image is a little too hipster but they sure brew some tasty beer. It is a crisp czech style pilsner very similar to Pilsner Urquell you wouldn't expect to taste in Canada. Strongly recommended if you have spare time...
