Labatt’s Brewery Tour London Reviews
Labatt’s Brewery Tour - London Aug 07, 2011
Back in 1847 John Kinder Labatt started brewing beer right here in London that produced close to 1000 bottles of beer a year. A lot has changed since the brewery first opened but the consistence for making great beer has remained the same. Labatt’s is the largest brewery in Canada that now brews close to 60 different beers.
If you have always wondered how beer is brewed then stop by the Labatt’s brewery to took a tour for yourself. A fully guide tour of the brewery will take about 2 hours to complete, which includes sampling! Yes that is right free sample, well in the long run the tour cost $10 (cash only) but you do get a souvenir tour t-shirt. You will be guided through the plant from goods coming in to finished product going out the door.
My favorite part of the tour would have to be well the sampling, lol. Besides that I would have to say the bottling part was pretty cool. A bottle in Canada can be used 5 times before it is recycled. I was a little shocked that they wouldn’t let you take your cameras on the tour with you. But I understand that they are trying to keep everyone from knowing all their little secrets. At the end of the tour you will be able to check out the Labatt’s 1919 antique keg trunk and the Labatt’s Streamliner that have been restored.
The Brewery tour runs year round but must be pre-booked by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone at 519-850-TOUR(8687) since tours are limited. They do require that you wear closed toe and closed heal shoes (like running shoes).
The brewery tour is most defiantly worth checking out not only for the samples but to learn some history and steps to making a great brew.
