This place is amazing and so much fun. Best time to visit the Brewery is during Toronto's event titled "Doors Open Toronto" where you can take a free tour of the Brewery. If Beer is your thing than this Brewery is heaven. It is located right next to the CN Tower and the Rogers Center and right next to the brewery is the Railway Round House where many old trains are on display in a museum type setting. The tour offers a free sample of the Brew as well.

Definitely worth visiting for all BEER drinkers!

I just recently went on the VIP tour and it was amazing. The story is very interesting and I love the space and how they have transformed it into not only a brewery but, an event space. I believe they do not promote the VIP tour but, it is a great experience. The staff seem to really enjoy their jobs and that makes the tour even more informative. It is great to see all the Green initiatives that they take part in.

Great Brewery Tour. Smaller facility but very interesting and one of the better tours I;ve been on. Worth the time. Try to avoid crowds better/after major events down town.

Situated south of CN Tower. Excellent railway displays & cars. Brewery gives out a free sample of their beer. Opens at noon.
Clean washrooms too. Historical photos on the walls.
