If you like Magic Hat, you have to take the free tour and partake in the free samples. Be aware that the tasting room and store are pretty much crazy busy at all times and insanely busy on weekend days. Its a popular site and that is the price of being good in this case. The brewery tour itself is... More

This is a short tour of their brewery. It's free and you can sample a few beers at the end (or before). The place has a funky vibe. Best for people who enjoy beer. Probably not something I'd go out of my way for though.

The place is in an old factory just off the highway----not much to speak of. The samples (limited to 4 small glasses) are free and the beer is excellent. You can't consume what you buy on site (odd) but that is the only drawback.

This is a fun place to visit! The brewery is decorated with cool, wild art and sculptures... good music is playing... and they give you generous free beer samples! There is a film that explains beer brewing, and a free self guided beer factory tour... you look down through windows at the brewing and bottling process, signs explain what you... More

You get four free samples with your visit. Bar staff is friendly. Fun space inside with all the decorations. They have self guided tours, but it's less of a brewery tour and more of a walk through a museum or shrine to Magic Hat.

Love visiting this place, it's just fun!! Plus you get to try 4 beers. We usually will find a beer we might not have considered buying. The staff is friendly and helpful. Lots of fun and unique merchandise. The tour teaches you in a fun way how beer is made. If you are here...you need to stop.

The Magic Hat Artifactory have a large selection of Magic Hat goods and of course sampling of Magic Hat beer. There are two types of tours available,guided or self guided. I have never taken the guided tour. Self guided tour is quite informative with amusing signs describing various operations such as "Bottlemabob" which "whirls bottles for no apparent reason other...

The actual tour was kind of lame, they showed us a video and the girl giving the tour sounded like she was trying to hard. What made this 4 star though was the tasting afterwards. We were given a punch card and a sample glass, and we were able to try up to 4 different beers. I loved all the... More

It was great to experience one of my favorite beer places! The tour was fun but not very informative. The free sampling was great and the price of purchasing a growler was much lower than I thought. 11$ for a fill. Great deals in the shop and plenty of merchandise to pick from. Would recommend to any who loves magic... More
