Interesting visit. I would recommend it to anyone who likes beer or is interested in its production. The $12 fee includes a 45 min tour and some beer tasting. Our guide Andrew was very friendly. The unfiltered version of this Pilsner has an incredible body.

This place is great. Even if you just walk in to check it out. Their beer is pretty good and the atmosphere is lively. Their merchandise also looks pretty cool and would make a great souvenir.

Hey! No problem leaving the stroller down in our store while on a tour. There is a few sets of stairs so you will need to carry the baby if you take the tour.
