“How I wish the rest of the world was”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Remember back in the day (ok, there never was such a day) when folks were friendly and trustworthy and generally easy-going? That's the experience at CBC. Free tours on Saturdays, virtually unlimited beer to drink (still free), really friendly staff, and actually educational.

We love taking family and friends there when they come to town.

Free tip: Easy on the qustions skippy. The more (stupid) questions you ask, the longer the tour takes.

Another free tip: Get there early on busy weekends (Holidays, for example). But keep in mind you only get one beer until the tour starts.

Slight criticism: The facility is pretty shabby. It is kept clean, etc....but just be prepared for a less glamorous side of the business.

“The Tour is Worth Every Penny! ;-)”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

FREE tour with FREE beer!!!! This is a GREAT Saturday afternoon activity! You get a pint glass and they fill it to the rim with your choice of beer before the tour starts. Not your typical 2-3 oz taste test. Great music plays overhead as you look around the microbrewery on your own while sipping on your suds. One of the owners gives an informative and fun talk about the brewing process and the history of NBC. After the tour, the taps are turned back on for another 45-60 mins, and you can sample all the beer you want; they usually have 5-7 choices, including regular and seasonal brews. I loved their Summer Ale, Brown Nut Ale, and the Black Lager. They have 6 packs, cases, and NBC merchandise for sale. As I said before, worth every penny!!!!
