    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.
