Great tour led by Geoff. He kept it interesting and informative. Only a small brewery so the tour doesn’t take too long. Tour ends with sampling the product 🍻👍 Well worth the entrance fee.

We enjoyed the tour around the brewery. The tour guide was very helpful and informative. The brewery is fairly small but has a long history. The beer is good.
