We visited the Brewery on a weekend so unfortunately were unable to watch the bottling. Very informative and well worth the $3.00 weekend rate. The store items, however, are vastly overpriced.

Excellent tour and people were very friendly. Great way to spend an hour and get a free beer. Juice boxes were given to kids if you bring them along.

Interesting too see how they make the beer, the huge "barrels" are impressive at 120,000 liters. And beer sampling just great especially on a hot summer day.
