“Unusual after taste”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Steam Whislte is all hype and no substance. There are much better micro brewries in Ontario including Mill St Brewery and Amsterdam. Steam Whislte seems to go skunky very quickly and certainly an acquired taste. Quality is very inconsistent.

I spent the evening at Steam Whistle for a Track-3 fundraiser...and it was a magnificent facility! The staff even offered us free tours of the brewery. What an interesting history...and great beer!
