  • Absolutely amazing! I held a private event at Thimble Island Brewery and hands down couldn't have picked a better venue. They were very responsive in all my emails, they set up the room the way I wanted it the day before so I didn't have to, the price was right, and all of the staff were so courteous, outgoing, happy, and more. If I could give 10 stars I would! :)
  • The staff and serve was excellent. We missed the tour and they gave us a free pass to come back to take the tour. The beer is very good. Overall a fun place to go.
  • Went here after purchasing a groupon and had a fantastic experience. The tour was great, led by a hilarious and very knowledgeable guy who carried around a big stick...wish I remembered his name because he was awesome. Very respectful and funny at the same time, answered everyone's questions. We stuck around after the tour and played yahtzee, but we were very lucky to have found a seat. Great beer too, love the coffee stout. Definitely worth stopping in if you're in the area!
  • Vanilla coffee stout is amazing!! So happy I tried it!!! How about a chocolate flavor??
  • I took a ride to haxtons and taste tested the "ghost island IPA" a few months back. Needless to say, I'm hooked on it. I plan on taking a tour soon!
