A friend and stopped by on a Saturday to try this place out and were very pleased with the wide variety of beers. What started out as a place for high quality yeast has morphed into a fine ale house. Keep up the great work.

Very interesting tour. Beer samples of beer you can only get there. Our tour guide was excellent, our tour was really small, so very personalized to us.
