Our experience with Golden Dog Beer Tours was excellent! We had a group of eight and Derek was able to accommodate food sensitives and the minor travelling with us. I would recommend the tour for both locals and visitors to Saint John. Cheers!

We enjoyed our beer tour with owner Derek, and Tom, tour guide in training. Very personable and knowledgeable young men, eager to highlight the many beers of the area. Lots of good beer, good food and fun! Everything top notch!

It was a quiet Sunday afternoon in St. John's, until we met Derek at Picaroons. We had a great time visiting local pubs and breweries. They even planned for our underage daughter to travel around with us. Thanks for a great day!
