Ate here with a group and sampled an entire smorgasbord of menu items. Everything was top-notch. Staff was friendly and informative, offering suggestions when we couldn't decide what to order. We were not disappointed! Ginger beer is a must-try.

Very Funny and entertaining. You get a free glass and 3 beers with tour. If you stay for dinner you get another beer. Beer was very good. We ate their fish fry which was good, but the cheese curds are to die for.

I went with my husband and we had a blast! I recommend booking a tour in advance and grabbing some food at the brewery before the tour! We would definitely come back again!

For all the bravado this place brings it’s a big beer hall where tour regularly stop. It gets better with each beer but it never tips on excellent although some of their brews are. Loved the ginger beer!
