I really can't say enough about this wonderful microbrewery. Walked in with the wife in tow (not a beer person) about an hour before closing. We were greeted immediately upon walking in by Ryan Krill. Not the "I'm gonna say hi because I have to" hello. The "I'm genuinely glad that you're here to share in this awesome thing we're doing" hello.
Honestly, that was my first impression--that the purveyors of this rustic little microbrewery were genuinely happy that we were there. And it just got better from there. Over by the taps, we met Bob Krill whose passion and love for the whole operation is evident. In the midst of sampling some truly outstanding beers (the Beach Plum Ale was unreal) Bob showed us around and shared some really interesting stories about how they acquired/built different parts of their brewing system. Viewing the various examples of Chris Henke's mechanical engineering creativity was a tour all in itself.
We also learned tip #1 for visiting CMBC-- get there early. The Tomato Wheat beer was already gone when we got there, and there almost wasn't enough IPA left for me to fill a growler to take home.
Tip #2-- bring your significant other even if he/she doesn't like beer. My wife loved the Beach Plum Ale and greatly enjoyed talking to Bob and learning about the brewery. She already asked when we were going back.
Bottom line-- a great microbrewery run by very friendly guys who are passionate about beer.
Make the trip-- you won't be dissapointed.
