Nice brewery that gives free tours and 4 free samples. The bartenders are super nice and take their time explaining the differences in the beers. It is very dark in there and made me feel like I was back in the 70's. However, it was very tastefully done. I would recommend this attraction for a good time and to learn... More

Broad based beer producers offering free tours & free samples, bombers, a growler bar with 40+ taps & gifts. The place smells like beer. It was fun to try all the different samples of beer. Good for beer lovers.

This site incorrectly says tours cost $80. They are free, guided or unguided. Free samples. Swag for sale. Very nice employees.

I loved this experience. I've done the brewery tour, which is cool. They let you sample 4 beers for free. I love #9 and nothing tastes better then it right off the tap. Their prices can be quite high, but it's totally worth the experience!

Taking the tour of the brewery is awesome. But having taken the guided tour twice.. I am still amazed at how it is done... it's not all automatic the bottles are still packed by hand. The tastings afterwards are awesome as well. If your a souvenir type of person .. there souvenirs are quite expensive.

We didn't have time to wait for a guided tour, but we walked through the self-guided tour. Not much to speak of, very little information is given so I'd recommend waiting for the guided tour if you can. The store and tasting area was small but interesting. Plenty of cool shirts, pint glasses and other merch to buy. Beer samples... More

A larger brewery pretending to be a craft brewery. However the own their theme and do a good job overall. Not the best beer in the area but the place is fun and the beer is cheap/free.
