I stopped here to check out the place. I had just missed the start of a tour. Inside, the lounge reminds me of New Orleans. Cool blues music in the background. I had the breakfast Porter which was excellent.

Flying Monkeys brewery (which used to be the Robert Simpson Brewery) has lots of interesting choices in beer and a cool storefront with an excellent tour. The best part is the upstairs room where they can also host private events overlooking the brewery floor. If you're in downtown Barrie and enjoy beer you should definitely check it out

Great venue for hosting adult birthday parties, anniversaries or any special gathering. Easy and budget friendly to bring your own food or catering. Bar service is always polite, space is clean, and the atmosphere and decor is warm which makes for good photo backdrops.

Conveniently located beside my office in Barrie this is a great spot. Their beer selection is great and tasty. Staff are very knowledgable on their products and helpful with selections. Free pinball is a bonus. When you go order the big fresh pretzels!

Interesting location - downtown Barrie - and history - formally Robert Simpson Craft Brewery. You can go on a tour of the brewery and buy gifts (glasses, etc.) in the gift shop.
