  • Had a fantastic evening here! There was some live music to begin with and a great crowd on a Thursday night. Great selection of Quidi Vidi staples and some small batches. For anyone like myself who is not from the area, park down the street by the water and walk around to the back of the brewery to the second door, then up the stairs to the tasting room.
  • Souvenir shirts for men were all sold out. Beer was quite pricey. Staff seemed more interested in the computers than the customers. However, I managed to get some nice souvenirs anyway and the Iceberg beer is really refreshing.
  • Lovely atmosphere, though we are told you can't find standing room Friday nights. Not a beer drinker (hate the stuff, normally) but found several brews I really enjoyed, much to my surprise. "Well crafted", and a wide variety from this local brewery. Might even take some home!
  • New tap room is a great step forward for this brewery. Beautiful space suits the location in the gut. Worth the visit. Adding “guest taps” is also a great idea for the bar. With a limited selection of beers at the bar and locally brewed in Newfoundland, incorporating space for compatriots beers is great.
  • Great local microbrewery spot in St. John's, especially since they have introduced a few new beers like the double IPA, session pale ale, and now the saison. They have a cool back patio spot with picnic tables that are great for enjoying a beverage in the sun while watching the local fishermen bring in their catch. Live music and tap room upstairs.
