We were so surprised at the scope of this visit. We were treated very well and learned a great deal. The fact that the beer was brewed right in front of us was awesome. Well done Creston.

Great place to stop and take a tour and grab a beer. Even if you don't take the tour, stop in at the gift shop to browse. Lots of history, great tour guide, and overall a fun side trip if you are passing through.

We've drove by the Columbia Brewery previously but because we got there late we missed their tours. Tip is for you to plan ahead and see when their tour hours are so you don't drive all the way to be disappointed. Finally we made it...More
