Josh was a great tour guide. Nice touch how you are presented with a bottle of beer at the start of the tour and then a sample of their unfiltered beer at the end of the tour. Great vibe in the Brewery.

Worth the $12 tour! You get beer, basically the tour is free. They have orange soda for people that don't drink. Very informative and our tour guide Josh was fun, humorous and unique! Perfect length of time, wasn't bored.

The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour is good value and interesting. You get a free bottle of beer on the tour. The food looked good too. The place is lovely and clean and a nice place to sit.

Many times this type of tour shows you some pictures or a few quick glimpses of some big, shiny machines and then on to the gift shop, but this one gets it right. First you actually get a beer at the beginning of the tour,...More

Hey! best bet is to book ahead of time, our tours sell out very quickly! Head to our website and head to the tour info section.

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.
