Courtnie_R, Mar 2023
There was no memorable part, our tour guide was unenthusiastic and not knowagable. The tour would’ve been better if we had a different tour guide who actually knew what he was talking about and more enthusiastic.

We did get to taste some beer. However, we did not learn much about beer tasting in the sense of learning how to appreciate differences between different kind of beers.
Good brews
Shannon_L, Dec 2022
Enjoyable trip to three different pubs. All offering a paddle of tastings of their own brews. Our guide Tristen was very informative about the places and offered history on the area.
We had a great time....

Jay_M, July 2022
Beers were great! Venues were great! Sharing a tasting paddle between 2 people and getting a toasted sandwich at the end was very poor!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi Jay – Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Its great to know that you enjoyed the beers and found the venues to be great. You mention sharing a paddle between 2 at the end was poor. Sharing paddles are used throughout the experience and a different number of beers are provided at each venue. Each member of the group then gets a toasted sandwich each at the last venue. If you would like to provide us with more details of your experience, we would welcome your comments in view of how we can better manage our customers expectations. If you would like to do so please contact our customer care team at customer
