    Great Tour and Great Beer
    Great tour of the offices, plant and tap room. Our host was very informative, passionate, and took time to explain the history of the company and the process in which the beer is made. We also got to enjoy free samples of selected beers which was great as this helped us in deciding which ones to buy at the end of the tour. Would definitely recommend this to anyone local that wants to learn about a great company and their heritage within the city as well as with anyone visiting the city as the tour was about 1 hour.

    Ready, and willing!
    This was my first brewery tour ever, so I don’t have much comparison, but I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of the Moosehead brewery! Been a James Ready fan since day one, they even printed one of my cap ideas! One thing that was disappointing was that I couldn’t get a pint of JR straight from the brewery! Other than that, our tour guide, Em, was very knowledgeable, engaging and fun to have show us around! I loved to learn about the history, and see how it all goes down! I would definitely recommend taking the tour!

    Highly recommend! Awesome experience!
    We have been going to Saint John for almost 2 decades and finally decided to go on the brewery tour. It was a wonderful tour and Ashley, our tour guide was so knowledgeable and had a wonderful sense of humor. The samples were great and not just a shot size sample, but like 4oz glasses samples. My husband tried 3 different brands including a Small Batch flavor that is on it's way out and you can't buy. I'm not a beer drinker but the Radler Grapefruit was great for a non beer drinker. It didn't have that after taste. They had just started production of the bottles when we were there and boy, do those bottles move fast! We ended our tour in the Tap Room where you can buy a drink, beverages to take home and merchandise. I wanted a t-shirt but they didn't have my size in stocks. I got a couple of glasses with the Moose on it and a magnet. I will order my shirt on-line. It was a great experience and even got to meet Bruce the Moose at the beginning of the tour! Highly recommended if you can spare an hour or so.

    Excellent drink location.
    We booked one of the outdoor domes and what a nice experience. We will be sure to book them again and likely stay for a couple of hours next time. The staff at the bar were very friendly and fast. They also let you try a few different flavours before you decide which beer to enjoy. As it is Christmas time they offered a candy cane flavour and actually rimmed the glass in icing sugar and crushed candy cane! All delicious. One word of caution, it can be a bit cold in the dome so be sure to bundle up! Such a great experience!

    Moosehead Taproom , great neighborhood pub.
    A small intimate pub with a great variety of beer on tap. Even if you aren't a beer drinker there are libations for you . In summertime a great patio with fire tables . In winter they have 3 domes that are like igloos that are outfitted with heaters. Very cozy .A great neighborhood pub .

    Winter Dome experience
    This was our second time now getting together with friends in the Domes. What a great idea to expand winter capacity and provide a unique setting to enjoy an ice cold beverage on a winter day. Easy to book and friendly staff.

    Great friend date spot
    Great Friday night spent in the domes. They are perfect for a night out, with friends or a date. The blankets and lamp helped fight the cold of that night, I enjoyed being in charge of music with the Bluetooth speaker. Only issue was the heater wasn’t throwing much heat.

    Amazing Taproom & Brewery Experience
    Had a fantastic tour, the guide Deanna was both knowledgeable and engaging, adding to the overall experience. Traveled from the US to come see the brewery and was not disappointed! Spent the afternoon in the taproom sampling the different brews and enjoying the lovely atmosphere. Would recommend for anybody in the Saint John area.

There is something so satisfying about sitting outside, in February, in a t-shirt with a cold beer. The domes are a nice size and they stay warm(I actually opened a window)
I will be visiting again!
