The beer is just amazing and the servers are professional. No warm homey glow here, but the BEER, isn't that why you came anyway? The barrel art and the displays are super cool. A MUST stop if you are in the area!

Amazing experience. Service, atmosphere, the cocktails 10/10. Don't bother reading reviews just go there.

As per the title, I'm not sure what's so great. The beer was ok and the free samples were very much appreciated but there wasn't that much to look at for more than 5 minutes or so. Not sure why everyone is raving about it.

My house guests loved our midday stop here. Informative displays and view into the brewing process, and the complimentary tastes were a particular hit! They enjoyed knowing that the owners are also great community event sponsors.

No there is only tastings and tours. You may be able to call to see if you can do a private tour and tasting. Hope this helps.
