Very nice place in downtown Barrie. Quaint and small, with a definite small town friendly vibe. Sampling room is nice, with some fun reasonable stuff to buy. They are very generous with their time and tasting. A good visit, but not a must.

nice place in the core of Barrie. you can pop by for a free tasting or three and purchase a pint if need be. No food, not a pub but a decent place to visit nonetheless. I hear there are plans for them to open up a proper pub in the future. Most of their beers are filtered so that sucks but otherwise they make some okay beers.

My local brewery. They sell all their beers and have free tours on the weekends. Tour includes a sample of everything in their regular production. They also have a party room upstairs that can be rented for events with its own bar and kitchen. Also sell shirts, glasses, and other paraphernalia in their store front.

More of just a storefront for the beer. They usually only have a couple of regulars on tap and I have to visit when they have something unique just for tasting which would be nice.

Stopped in to try some samples. Disappointed they only had a couple of things on tap with nothing special but that was just bad timing on my part. Nice setup, friendly staff and worth the visit off the 400 if you feel like a beer.

NIce location on the main st in barrie. The place has a nice decor, the store has a nice bit of room. Coolers lined with 6 packs of their beers, the dont seem to make too many beers, but there was 3 taps I believe and the staff there poured me a very generious sample of the smashbomb. I would estimate 4 ot 5 oz and it was a free sample. Nice place too stop in, you can see the brewery to the back of the store with lots of the tanks and things there, Worth the stop if your in the area.

Peter and Co. have a beautiful facility here, right in the heart of Barrie overlooking Heritage Park and Lake Simcoe. The brew house is pristine and spacious with several attractive brite tanks and a brand new (very tiny) pilot system. The vibrant retail store sports all types of FM t-shirts, pint glasses, and ball caps. At the time of my visit, Hoptical Illusion, Confederation Amber Ale, and Anti-Gravity were available in bottles, while Netherworld and Robert Simpson Pale Ale were on tap. I grabbed a mixed 2-4 of the three core brands and Netherworld, the latter of which was retrieved from downstairs thanks to Peterís generosity. With respect to the beers, Iím not over the moon about the light and amber ales, but the Monkeys are quickly becoming the vanguards of adventurous, hopped-up brewing in Ontario, as evidenced by their Smash Bomb Atomic IPA, Black IPA, American Pale Ale, and various outstanding one-offs. They also deserve credit for actually getting their hop-forward beers into the LCBO and Beer Store, which almost no other brewer in the province has been willing to do. My prediction is that FMCB will continue to carve out its niche in this market by brewing popular but neglected styles and pushing pallets forward in the process. Right now they have plans to brew an American Imperial Stout (draught) and strong Baltic Porter (draught & bottles) and Smash Bomb is pending approval at the LCBO. For their excellent brews and courageous mission to put Ontarians onto hops, the Monkeys deserve our praise and financial support. Oh, and the brewery is well worth a visit. :D

Nice looking building in downtown Barrie. Inside there are boat loads of merch and they have ample 6 packs of their top 3 beers. The staff are very friendly and eager to please. The free samples are also very easy to come by. Nice place and i was lucky enough to get some smash bomb ipa that technically wasnt for sale!
