Family outing to see the history of famous family owned and run business. Tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Plenty of interesting vintage artefacts to inspect. A good beer tasting time that included discussion of hops, abv and ibu that other brew tours haven't. Extensive merchandise and it wasn't all hideously expensive, many practical nick nacks.

This was a great tour with a little history and an opportunity to see the inside of a working brewery. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed the sampling of beer after our tour, as well as the beer garden. You cannot take beer with you ON the actual tour, but once it is over, you are allowed to walk around freely and enjoy the grounds with you beverage. Very fun afternoon. Also, you can get tickets anytime after it opens for an afternoon tour and it is a good idea to get them early if you really want to go so they don't sell out and you will reserve your spot.

Had a great time with family! We had a large family and the tour for $5 was well worth the money! I was very impressed. I do wish that the tour would have outlined the brewing process more than it did,but seeing the grounds and equipment along with the tasting at the end was great for a family with kids
