  • Called on 10/22/16 and the message said they do tours every half hour on Saturdays. We drove two hours and arrived at 2pm just for the tour. The girl at the tour desk said they won't have another tour until 5. Wait what? We explained that we drove two hours because it said they are doing tours every half hour according to their message. She said that is during the summer months. She said it's now every hour. So we said we would wait the hour but then she said they cut back on staff this time of year so they won't have another tour for 3 more hours. Needless to say we were not very happy and left. We will not be back. To many other local places with better hospitality.
  • This place was amazing! Free tastings, no taxes, fresh beer at lower prices than most liquor stores, tasting glasses and glassware for purchase! The tour was great and very informative. I absolutely loved my experience here. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves good beer.
  • Came here with my girlfriend shortly after she turned 21, we both had a great time! Everyone working was super friendly, and knowledgeable about the beer they were selling. The tour around the brewery was super cool as well. You go all over the compound and see lots of neat stuff. Had a great experience all around!
  • Didn't do the tour, great beer tasting menu that was free. What I tasted persuaded me to get a 6 bottle pack and a growler. They also have a small store attached, good experience, but -1 star for being in the middle of nowhere, it's in a small town full of police speed traps, and the bar was not really setup for a crowd.
  • One of my favorite breweries. Always great beer. Staff super nice and helpful. Tour was awesome being able to see where all the beer is made. And they let you taste 4 beers for free. Let's not forget about the food. Try one of each of the bratwursts and a spoonful of the sauce. Both which are made infused with one of the beers they make. Amazing.
