This was an evening out with family & friends during a long wedding week-end. There were about 40 of us added to their normal evening crowd. We enjoyed tasty libations and entertainment from a musical group. They offered friendly thoughtful service. There is a food truck which offered burgers etc. Wish this was in my town

My wife and I spend a lot of time at Deerhammer... probably a bit too much. Whatever, the whiskey is *great*! The staff is amazing as well. Ask for a tour and tasting. I'm not a gin fan, but gin drinkers we've taken here have been happy. I really like the Whitewater Whiskey. My favorite drink is the whitewater old... More

A wonderful little distillery right on the side of the street in downtown. A great tasting of various pours and a very nice selection to chose from. Picked up one of the 1 year aged bottles for later on. Well worth the time to stop in and check it out!

This was a cool little place to stop in while we were passing through Buena Vista. I enjoy microbreweries, but there aren't any distilleries where I live, so the idea of a "local" liquor (that isn't moonshine from a still in the woods) was intriguing. The tasting room is rustic and cozy and there was ample outdoor seating. No tour... More

Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time at our Distillery. Regarding the pricing of bottles at our tasting room vs. any other liquor stores... I'm quite sure there must have been some confusion — the prices for our spirits at the tasting room are exactly the same as our suggested retail prices. In... More

Sipped in here after a rafting trip, and had a few much needed delicious cocktails. You can bring your lunch and sit on the pick nick tables, or grab a burger from a food truck. Awesome place.

Small but nice and free sample to visitors. Took son and wife to Deerhammer when they came to visit us. Owners and servers very nice, gave a tour of their distilling, Its nice to have a variety of businesses and in a smaller town like Buena Vista you wouldn't expect a distillery but the bar is open and product available...

Once you're done playing in or around BV and realize there's not much else to do downtown, I recommend killing time at Deerhammer. The staff is great (how much do you want to know about bourbon and gin?) and the microdistilled spirits are tasty. There's a nice food truck parked next door and the patio is a great place to...

The Deer Hammer mixed drinks combine interesting ideas into fascinating flavors you'll remember and come back for even if you usually choose 'house' brand liquor just to save a buck. Here you'll TASTE the whiskey right through the crazy mixtures and get to appreciate the inventiveness of both. It's a 7$ drink that you remember the taste of and come... More
