We went on the Magic Hat brewery tour and it was FANTASTIC. Its a free tour and you can sample 4 of their brews. The tour takes about 30 minutes and there are plenty of items and beer you can purchase. There are also coupons floating around if you spend $30 you get a free pint glass,. The staff is... More

You can get free samples of their beer and a free tour. They also have a cool shop that you can buy lots of Magic Hat merchandise.

I have been on many, many beer tours and if you've seen one, you've pretty much seen them all. Truthfully I have been on this one before...they try to make it fun and energetic. But I go for the samplings...you can get four and they have 6 or 8 different beers available. Magic Hat beers have never been my favorite,... More

This is good for a one hour, maybe 1.5 hour stop. You can hang in the gift shop and sample a couple brews, plenty of funky things to do and see, and they had a decent if fairly simple tour. The photo booth was fun, and it works OK for a couple teenagers in the family if you keep the... More

I'd never heard of this brewery before, just stumbled upon it. The tour is free, the girl giving the tour was outgoing & funny. I thought it was interesting & they also give you 4 free samples of their beers. I'm not a huge beer drinker, but I like 1 every now & then, & their beer #9 was my... More

Tour was somewhat boring - really not much to see. The only worthwhile part of the 'tour' were the 4 samples

I was passing through Burlington heading home from vacation and saw the magic hat sign. It was a quick and fortunate decision to stop in. Four generous pours of good beer and a decor that made me feel like I stepped into an alternate universe. I wish I had time to see the tour which is also free, but kids... More

While visiting Berlington we stopped at the Magic Hat. It has a psychodelic feel as you walk in and are greeted by black lights. We took a self tour of the brewery and found it interesting. The tour ends back in the main room with souveniers you can buy and a long bar. For free, friendly bartenders give you a... More

Every brewery is different but the people at Magic Hat definitely take the cake! As soon as you walk in its like your transported to a totally different place. I don't like beer but my husband does and wanted to go here so badly. I am never one to say no to a brewery because I love meeting the people... More

Free tours and beer tasting. Lots of swag in the artifactory. Eight different beers on tap to choose from. Tour was very cool and they were in production when we toured.
