We arrived right at 2:00 for the tour and realized we missed the pre-tasting, but were told we could do it after the tour which actually was better for us and had no time restraints. My husband and I have been on many brew tours and this one ranks at the top. What an impressive brewery! The tour (45 minutes) was informative, fast paced and not bogged down with minutia. Our guide was very friendly, funny and clearly passionate about Deschutes and its product. After the tour we stayed for our (tasty) samples and browsed the gift shop. Given we can’t get this beer on the east coast, it was a coveted visit and we savoured each sip.
