An enjoyable afternoon with a good guide and some free beer. Tour takes about 45 minutes with booze before, during and after, I'd do it again!

Steam Whistle Brewery is located in the old train station ! Stopped in for a pint after a Jays game and left with a Growler ! Atmosphere was wild and even the wife enjoyed a taste of the local flavor!

This location is an interesting destination for a leisurely beer and tour of a brewery in the middle of downtown Toronto. But if your looking for a venue for an event, it's a beautiful place for about 160 people. The staff is experienced and will advise you and help you through the planning and day of the party

Went to Steamwistle with my son in law, had never been to a brewery before. The tour was very interesting showing us how beer was made as well the story of how the company was started. Of course the free beer on the tour was a plus! Great spot to check out of you are near there!

I did a tour here after going to the aquarium... and it was soooo fun! Everyone there gets drinks in the tour, and theres a bar you can visit before/after the tour. The staff are amazing, the people there are super nice... and its an overall good experience to see machinery and how a grain turns into golden yummy liquid... More

I visited in January 2017 when I happened to be in the area. I was headed to the Toronto Railway Museum and thought I would pop in for a pint. The people are friendly and boy was I surprised. It is an elegant microbrewery turned retail store. They even offer tours for those willing to venture behind the scenes. All... More

My boyfriend and I went on a brewery tour and loved it. We've been on a few in Canada, but this was by far the best! Greeted straight away by a beer sample, then shortly after a bottle of beer to take around with us. The tour was comprehensive and history section was excellent. Thanks Steam Whistle!

The first time I came here, the tours were all booked up for the day so when the opportunity arose to come back, I jumped right on it. We were a group of 7 family members and they were more than able to accommodate to us. We only had to wait half an hour for our tour to start which... More

Not a big beer drinker but swung by on a recommendation - and drank all the beers! Tour guide was fab, really engaging with plenty of bad jokes, not much going on in the production side as we went over Christmas but cool to see the place, hear the stories and just keep drinking!

Great staff with good hospitality. I love visiting Steam Whistle Brewery because of its welcoming staff and unique ambiance. They give you variety of beers to sample for free if you haven't had a chance to taste their beer yet. I like the idea because it gives us chance to choose and decide our choice of drink.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
