I'm not a beer or whiskey connoisseur, so I'm really not the best person to comment on the beverages offered at Ranger Creek other than to say everything I tasted was fine by me. The tour itself, though, was one of the best my husband...More

Tour took about 2 hours. So full of information and we really enjoyed it. They are passionate about their business and we enjoyed our visit here. A business that truly cares about their consumers enjoying their product.

Great beer and whiskey with nice tour guides, however the amount of people allowed to tour is 80 split into 2 groups. They have one bathroom. This can make things a little uncomfortable. Always a line. If they could add 2 or 3 bathrooms I...More

Thanks for the feedback, Jake. We are working on adding more indoor restrooms and hope the outdoor restrooms help ease the line a little in the meantime.

Great and informative tour and friendly people. Mark has a passion for what he does and it's obvious throughout the tour. The beer was good. I didn't try the whiskey. Definitely worth the $10 and an afternoon learning and tasting.

We unknowingly arrived after the last tour. There was a party scheduled for that evening. Matt saw us come in and gave us a free tour...just our family. He rocked and so did the tour. Make sure to see the Barrel Room. Thanks Matt!
