  • No bells or whistles; it is just about the beer. The lager is great. Easy to find and everyone is very friendly. You pore your own beer from kegs and you can also open bottles of beer to sample as wel...  more »
  • Had a good time at the Straub brewery tour. On a cold winter day what better place to hang out. Tour was informative and about 1 hour in length. Not a place if you can't do stairs well. Guide was info...  more »

  • I paid for FedEx shipping for a friend's birthday and I could walk this damn hat fazter
  • The beer was great but I don't get the whole 'eternal tap' thing. I came here for a few glasses after making some local deliveries and after only a couple of beers we were told we had to leave. How is that 'eternal?' Still, the beer that Straub's makes is darn tasty - I'd put it up against Sam Adams, etc.
  • Very generous with their time and beer. This was a great your and charming facility. The tour was also unique from other tours, as the company has many idiosyncrasies.
  • They are always coming up here with free samples of beer for our guests to try and bottle openers. The guests LOVE it!!! They always think of others.
  • Awesome place , great people . Loved the tour and the beer tasting , very few family brewery's left and this one is one of them . Definitely check it out if you are in the area .
