Great FREE tour and tasting. Good beer and great place. Not really for kids. Attached to a good eatery - order it there and they deliver it. Hendrick was a wonderful host and everyone got a beer before we even started. Refills along the way.

Yes, children are allowed at the Brewery for tours and otherwise -- we're quite family friendly. Obviously they can't have any beer, but we have Kombucha and a house-made soda on tap as well!
