We did the noon tour on a windy Saturday. The guide was very knowledgeable and funny. The beers are all excellent and worth the trip. If we come back we would think about showing up for the Fri night party.

We attended a brewery tour here in April. As it is not quite tourist season yet, our small group was able to secure the private tour! Our hostess was very informative and spent a lot of time graciously answering our questions. Our tour was over an hour and very detailed. I would come back here again!

Attended a show in the upstairs bar. Great venue with great selection of drinks and a spectacular view. If you're visiting St. John's be sure to make the trip into Quidi Vidi

We had a wonderful tour of the brewery. Adrian, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. Because we were a small group, he was able to spend extra time with us. We enjoyed the tasting and the stories behind each brew. A must see if you are in St. John's NL!

Had a chance to tour the brewery and taste five beers. Enjoyed their Iceberg beer. A great little gem of a village with great character. Beer tour is $10 per person.

We usually like to take a drive down here and buy a case or two of beer, and go for a walk on the trail. Be aware that parking is pretty annoying and limited here, especially if they have a delivery coming or going; the delivery truck often takes up most of the parking lot. I've never had time to...

Being the only brewery on the island, this place is worth the visit. The lineup was way too long to actually tour the brewery and the price too steep for the 3 of us so we purchased a 6 pack and sat on the deck outback and took in the beautiful scenery. Well worth the hour or so we spent... More

Home cooked food, local beer and a charming atmosphere are topped off with genuine Newfoundland music on Friday nights. Don't miss it!

Quidi Vidi doesn't take itself seriously but they have some seriously good beers. The tour begins with a very entertaining history and tasting session.
