“Not a beer drinker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

An hour well spent - interesting & informative throughout. Extreme care taken with safety. Enjoyable tasting at the end & enjoyed the restaurant food with a lovely garden to enjoy We toured the brewery at 11, enjoyed lunch & then caught Louisa's walk - a great way to spend a day.

“interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Loved the tour... presented well by the guide. The history of the building and business were quite interesting. The concept of the 'bottle tops' for tasting was clever as well.

“Save your $25 dollars”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

My husband went on the cascade brewery tour today. We had our 2yr old with us and learnt that kids under 15 aren't allowed to go on the tour, funny they have to be under 15 and not 18?
Anyway my son and I explored the gardens (cute rabbits bouncing around) for the 1 hr and 15mins he was on your. Plan to have lunch also but lunch meals were a bit limited and a bit pricey. Ended up getting a coffee that was not made the way it should be and two scones. My boy had chips and a juice - grand total of $20.
Husband soon returned a bit miffed as he hoped the beer would be cheaper here - as it's made on site and no delivery cost would incurr. Also 3 samples that are included in the $25 tour price doesn't include all the beers - definitely not premium lager. The glass the beer is served to you is smaller than a pot glass.
He recommends make the trip to the brewery but don't go on the tour - spend that money on a few beers and have some lunch. Also Get some photos of the buildings.

“If your interested or love beer this is a must.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Really cool brewery. I was a little disappointed that there was no more tours available for the day when I arrived. So I would recommend booking - however the brewery looks amazing and th beer tasting is very nice. I would recommend a visit just for a taste.
