“Very Cool Brewery and Trains! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

The place has a unique industrial look to it. It serves free samples of a rather malty-tasting beer. We got there as the lasr tour was ending, but from what we saw, it looked to br pretty informative.

“Great value and very interesting your”

$10 for two tasters and a bottle of beer, a quality branded bottle opener and a interesting tour by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. You get to tour the brewery and learn a lot

“Good tour, fun even for my wife”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

This is good tour to do, you get a cold beer at the start and one at the end and a good deal on a six pack or twelve pack if you buy with the tour ticket. The girl who showed us around was entertaining and kept it engaging, it was not as involved as say touring a british brewery but similar to the jubilee experience. Worth doing, go before last tour of the day or you won't get much time at the end for beers. The beer is better than a bud or the mass produced beers, not exactly my taste but a good example of a pills.
