  • 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 .
