A great tour with a very experienced guide. I'm not a beer drinker, but I found it to be very interesting. Saw the filling line and many other areas of the facility. The beer sampling at the end of tour was fun. Sampled 5 beers which included Bud and Bud Lite, but I wish we could have sampled something other than these 2 beers as most of us are familiar with these.

A good tour to take if you have some extra time...be aware that the tour is a full 2 hours.

I love going on tours to see everyday things being made, and the tour of this brewery did not disappoint. You got to see all aspects of how the beer is bottled, from creating the mixtures of hops and malt, to storage, to bottle cleaning and refilling. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable.

You also got to sample five beers which you drank in a lounge while the tour guide explained the history of each one and even showed the proper way of pouring. On that day we sampled Labatt Blue, Stella Artois and Alexander Keiths India Pale Ale which I loved. But the other two were Bud and Bud light which I didn't care for. In the cooler behind the bar we saw some bottles of a Belgian beer called Leffe. Why couldn't we have tried a sample of that instead of the Buds!?

Still, it's a great tour and well worthwhile. Just drink more Alexanders and Stella a spare the Bud Light.

The Labatt Brewery tour was most interesting. I believe it is one of the biggest breweries in Ontario, and expanding has they have recently acquired Corona. Our tour was guided by an experienced guide who really knew what she was talking about. We accessed a number of different areas of the brewery including the filling line which I found most interesting. After the tour there is a tasting of a number of different beer freshly brewed. The tasting concludes with visiting some original delivery trucks which are in beautiful condition. Well worth a visit!

You will get a tour of the brewery, but it's not much more than that. It is not as fun nor interesting as other brewery tours. However, if you're curious how beer is made and you're in the area, it's not a bad time.
