Hard to get tickets, but worth it. Not a long tour, but the tour guides are funny and you will have a great time. All you can drink for 2 hours....who does that? And not those tiny little glasses either! Our guide let us go back numerous times during our tour for a refill....thanks Kirtzy!

The tour is... More

Small brewery with loads of laughter and fun. All you can drink, and they knew how to handle large rowdy groups. I was impressed that despite the large groups and prime time traffic the place was very clean. The floor was not sticky and the beer was flowing freely. They were able to make sure everyone had a beer in... More

I'm guessing this is a good place if you just reached legal drinking age and want to drink as much as you can for $10 bucks. But for us older folks (I'm 49), I would recommend Brenner or Lakefront, or pretty much anywhere else. The staff there were all drinking quite a bit of their own products, with the exception...

This place had weird hours so make sure you check before you go. We wanted to do the tour but went next door to the central standard distillery since it was closed the 3 days we were in town. The beers were good.
