The brewery is a great space to grab a bite to eat along with a tasty drink. The brewery tours were informative and gave you insight into the beer making process. All in all, a great place to hang out, have some great beer.

We missed the tour since you need to reserve in advance. The beer is fine you can get filtered or unfiltered. Very, very touristy. We weren't ever able to get a seat.More

Hey! best bet is to book ahead of time, our tours sell out very quickly! Head to our website and head to the tour info section.

Hey! No problem leaving the stroller down in our store while on a tour. There is a few sets of stairs so you will need to carry the baby if you take the tour.
