“A perfect brewery visit.”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

This brewery is located in the historic John St Roundhouse in downtown Toronto. Opposite the entrance to the CN Tower and close to all amenties the brewery reaches it's 24th anniversary this year and is sure to offer some great promotions and celebrations. You should combine this with a trip to the tower, but if you are planning to do the Edgewalk you should make this visit later as you want to sample the product!!

“Great tour!”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

A bunch of us went from work on a VIP tour and it was great. Our guide was Phil who was very knowledgable, fun and very hospitable. He made sure we had beer and the pizza at the end was a nice touch - it came with the package.

“Fun times - great venue!”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Have been on many brewery tours but Steam Whistle was one of the most enjoyable. The history of the building and the story behind the company are interesting. Tour guide was funny and knowledgeable.

I have also been to events at the Steam Whistle and it is a great venue.
