2015-08-01. Popped in on a Saturday afternoon. The sampling area was closed but the cashier let me try a sample of something before committing. The bar area is fairly large but feels sort of temporary. The actual store area is fairly small - it was pretty cramped with our group and another. Small picnic table in the courtyard (not sure if you can drink out there or not). They had a couple of their Welly One Offs in the fridge today. Worth a visit to pick up some cans, but check the times if you want to sample more on site.

retail store with some events space. one of ontarios oldest micros. the core lineup in pedestrian but the canned imperial stout is a good beer and decent value. they have recently started doing more one offs with more misses then hits. worth a stop if you are in the area but not a destination.

Probably one of the nicest tap rooms I have seen. Looks like a bar, with a pool table and a large seating area. Samples are free to a point then they charge. Very nice staff, curious and helpful. Selection was just their own but includes in house small batches not available elsewhere. Free is good value. A good place to stop, they really hit beer geeks and non beer geeks alike.

Not sure why I havenít rated this place until now, since Iíve been there a million times. Easy to find location right off of highway 7 from where I live. In a weird industrial and otherwise kind of shitty end of town for Guelph. Nice building though, with fairly decent parking. Staff is always pretty friendly and Iíve never had to stand around waiting for someone to figure out I was there. The store front is small but in a convenient way. Wedged between their offices and the on-site pub/restaurant/room they host events in. Their full-range of beers is available in abundance, as well as some interesting products like home-made soap of some of their beers. The monthly one-off beers is what keeps me coming back regularly. I personally feel that the prices are fantastic, having picked up six tall-cans this past weekend for just over $16, and itís of course fresh and delicious product. Has a bit of a home-y feel with a BBQ hanging out by the door at all times. Out in the country, there isnít much to do besides watch medium-sized planes coming and going from Waterloo Region airport, so youíd best check this place out and pick up some awesome local beers. Guelph itself is also a cool little town, but the town itself is still a bit of a drive from out where this place is.

You can buy all their standard brews in the store, plus occasional brewery exclusives and one-offs. Good quality beer, and a friendly little store. Worth stopping by if youíre in the neighbourhood.

Stopped by on a non-tour day. They were still nice enough to take us to the tasting bar and give us some samples (and I appreciated being able to try the one off cask on tap!). Picked up some singles from their beer store.

Small place, in a decent location. The place has a nice patio you walk through to get to the beer store inside, or the tasting bar. I went here to one of their sunday open houses and if your in the area on a sunday I recommend going. For $5 you get to try each one of their brews, Like 6 or 7 or maybe even more. When I was their they had 2 one offs so there were lots. You also get a glass to take home with you. It was quite enjoyable. One of the best times I have had at ontario brewer.

the iron duke lounge was nice. the people working there were very friendly. they had a special Maple Stout one-off when we were there which was pretty good. its well worth going to this place during one of their open houseís. $5 for samples, a pint and a brew tour.

Great place. Really enjoyed a trip over from Waterloo, but would have driven from further. The Iron Duke lounge at the front is a warm and welcoming pub atmosphere. The reception desk / sales office is friendly and warm. The tour was interesting and informal fun. Worth the trip for thier Imperial Russian Stout.
