I have tried a few beers here and have to say they make good stuff! I have had a few seasonal beers which I think are amazing that add them and they have a selection that are their staples. I do have to say that the pb&j is lovely, it's not a beer they have so don't go looking for... More

We shared a flight of very good beers. The staff were, as you'd expect and want in a craft brewery, informed and friendly. A pleasant wee break and decent brews.

Great bar to take a break from shopping. The flights are a great idea to try the different types of beer. Good take out prices too

Probably booming in the summer Farmers Market. 10 great microbrews to choose from. Really sweet tender helped us select our tray. Looking forward to coming back!

Great location on the harbourfront. The store is new and sleek. You can buy beer flights or get a full pour. They also sell six packs and growlers. The service was spotty. If you are into craft beer, give it a try. You may like their beer. For us, it was OK. Hence the 3 star rating. We did not... More

Two bars but only one was staffed when we were in. Plenty beers to sample and a short walk if you are on a cruise ship.

Stopped here on a cruise and tried a few of the beers they offer. Mainly came here for the free WiFi but the beer was great too!

We asked the cashier to choose five beers to sample. Although I'm not even sure which ones we tried, we took our beer outside and sat, enjoying a beautiful day, watching the boats. The beers were fun; the entire experience a lot of fun!

Stopped in for a pint and then realized it's all "flight style" beers since they have nine on tap. We ordered a quick five small beers and enjoyed all of them. Some better than others but overall they all were enjoyed. You can see the brewery right from your seat. The gift shop has shirts and other souvenirs to remember... More

Great place to visit. Went here for a tasting, and got some beer history as well. They offer good selection of local beer and I especially liked the Tall ship. Great place to spent an hour.
