Had Nick as our tour guide and he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the brewery. Gave the history of the family and his thoughts on the beer styles. Always good to end the tour with some samples.

We actually called ahead for information about the tour and was told the tours were at 1pm and 3pm. We arrived approximately 1 hour early just to see the gift shop, get our tickets and relax prior to the actual tour.
