Unusual to start the tour with the sampling but hey this is Canada! Brenna was our tour guide and she made the trip worthwhile as she was able to answer all our questions. Sampling at the end was even more enjoyable once we had the history of the brewery behind us.

Had our corporate function here and did a tour first plus dinner. What an excellent idea. The tour was well done and very informative and dinner afterwards was to die for. Not to mention their beer selection is also very good. Highly recommended!

25$ ticket, two hours and endless samples, our tour guide Colin B. Was excellent and informative. There was a group that was doing the tour for a birthday, which seemed like a great idea. No heels allowed cuz the tour is up and stairs which are grate like.

Tatenda did an excellent job in providing the history of Big Rock as well as giving our group a detailed tour of the facilities. Made a typical tour quite outstanding! Jaison T

We had an excellent time at Big Rock! Tatenda was very knowledgeable and friendly. We left with a much better idea of the brewing process and the scope of Big Rock beers.
